For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 is veterans in helping clients just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

If you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is in a declining area, your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow standpoint. Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 can help you reinstate your HELOC.
