Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Sunrise Appraisals, are 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 price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is 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 your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI removed 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 the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Sunrise Appraisals is veterans in helping people just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Sunrise Appraisals is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Sunrise Appraisals can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
