For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at DANIEL I KANDEL will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Appraisals 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 is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We're experienced in helping consumers just like you rid yourselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Tax Assessment
Lets say you live in an area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you're paying more taxes than you should. The faster 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from DANIEL I KANDEL is your perfect weapon.
HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender might just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and detrimental to 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.
