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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Gregory James Company, Inc. 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 interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down 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. At Gregory James Company, Inc., we're veterans in helping consumers just like you dismiss unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that is going down or not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Gregory James Company, Inc. is your strongest weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender might just 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. Not only can this be unsuitable from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
