We at DANIEL I KANDEL understand the individual needs of a homeowner seeking appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're qualified in helping consumers just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from DANIEL I KANDEL is your chief weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area. This can this be annoying from a cash flow standpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. DANIEL I KANDEL can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you wish a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? An appraiser from DANIEL I KANDEL can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you need it immediately, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had in the past. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
