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

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to 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. A professional appraisal is very important 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 gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088, we're qualified in helping consumers just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining. That means you're paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 is your best weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be unfavorable to 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 HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a rush, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had in the past. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may wish to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
