Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

An attractive way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC, we're experts in helping customers just like you dismiss unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

If you live in an area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area. This can this be inopportune from a cash flow point of view, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
