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. The professional appraisers at Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get 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 is less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088, we're qualified in helping homeowners just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining or not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 is your number one weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house 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 standpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
