We at DANIEL I KANDEL understand the particular needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services.

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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, 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'll tell you what you need to know. 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 house will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs 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 amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At DANIEL I KANDEL, we're experienced in helping people just like you rid yourselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby. This means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting a professional appraisal from DANIEL I KANDEL is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. This can be be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow angle. DANIEL I KANDEL can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you like a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for precision?
