Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Challenge Tarrant County's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This only means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an appraisal report from Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be inopportune from a cash flow viewpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, 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 will go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can 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? We can help with that too. Although most review work is commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners suspecting a prior appraisal wasn't above board are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
