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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at David Hesidenz Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. 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 home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. David Hesidenz Appraisals is veterans in helping clients just like you rid yourselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
