Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

Since you have an emotional and financial attachment to your home, it's often very difficult to be objective about it. The professional appraiser from Tri Borough Appraisals, Ltd. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective and professional. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic and competative price to list at so your home will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much your home is worth. Potential qualified buyers know you have an emotional and financial attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Challenging property tax assessments

Let's say you live in a local area that is declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Tri Borough Appraisals Ltd. is your #1 weapon.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A preferred way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled 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 is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Tri Borough Appraisals Ltd., we're experts in helping people just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Tri Borough Appraisals LTD. can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
