We at DANIEL I KANDEL understand the special needs of a homeowner in need of appraisal services.

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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at DANIEL I KANDEL are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something concrete 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. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At DANIEL I KANDEL, we're experts in helping customers just like you abolish unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Broward county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region 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 faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal report from DANIEL I KANDEL is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is close to a declining area, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be annoying from a cash flow angle, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. DANIEL I KANDEL can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from DANIEL I KANDEL can go out and check the subject and comparables in question in a field review. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? DANIEL I KANDEL can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
