At Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC, we understand the individual needs of a homeowner after appraisal services.

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. 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 selling price so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting 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 property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC, we're experts in helping clients just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. This means you're probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC is your perfect weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your property is in a declining area, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow angle, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC can help with that too. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may want to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
