Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC 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 price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is veterans in helping consumers just like you abolish unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out.
