For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at 72 Hour Appraisals, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're experienced in helping folks just like you do away with unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a local area that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. Getting an appraisal report from 72 Hour Appraisals is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow viewpoint, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. 72 Hour Appraisals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
