Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Gregory James Company, Inc., will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, 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. Gregory James Company, Inc. is experts in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say you live in a local area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. is your strongest weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender might decide 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 inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be destructive to 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.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a professional to double-check your appraisal for precision? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you're 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.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
