For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at The Welter Appraisal Group are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A preferred way to cut costs 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". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're experienced in helping homeowners just like you abolish undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging Monmouth county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down. That only means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from The Welter Appraisal Group is your strongest weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just make the decision 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 angle, and destructive 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.
