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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At The Welter Appraisal Group, we're experts in helping homeowners just like you get rid of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Monmouth county's assessment of your property

If you live in a region that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from The Welter Appraisal Group is your chief weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area. This can this be inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. The Welter Appraisal Group can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
