We at DANIEL I KANDEL understand the unique needs of a consumer seeking appraisal services. Our business practices and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like lenders, lawyers, and accountants.

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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at DANIEL I KANDEL, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract many 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 how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI removed 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 property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are experienced in helping people just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other homes close by. That only means you are 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 DANIEL I KANDEL is your number one weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. DANIEL I KANDEL can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you'd like to have an expert double-check it for preciseness or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can 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 report you may have had done before. While usually requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
