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. Professional appraisers, like the ones at David Hesidenz Appraisals, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping clients just like you get rid of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other properties close by. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from David Hesidenz Appraisals is your perfect weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow point of view, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. David Hesidenz Appraisals can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
