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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at The Welter Appraisal Group will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". 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, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experts in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Monmouth county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other houses close by. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better. A professional appraisal from The Welter Appraisal Group is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

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. This can be be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow angle. The Welter Appraisal Group can help you reinstate your HELOC.
