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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the 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. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are seasoned in helping homeowners just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Duval county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is going down. This only 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 earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may choose 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 annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?
