Owner-Occupied Residential Property
Homeowner Appraisal Services
Homeowners need appraisals or appraisal reviews for a variety of reasons, including a mortgage refinance, home equity loan, pre-listing service, or PMI removal. When you order an appraisal or review from us, you can rest assured you will get the best in professional service, courtesy, and quality.
Make sure you request Margaret Nelson-Quin, SRA, if your lender asks you for YOUR choice of appraiser. More than likely we are already on their approved list; if not, we will quickly provide your lender with the necessary documentation to become approved.
For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
It’s difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. Margaret Nelson-Quin, SRA, is objective and will tell you what you need to know—not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer.
An independent third party’s opinion of your home’s value, a certified appraisal gives you something concrete to show your buyer. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser’s valuation.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A popular money-saver for homeowners in the last few years has been to get the Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) removed from their mortgage loan. This can lower your monthly mortgage payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80 percent of the value of your home, you can usually apply to the lender to request removal of the PMI from your loan. We are experienced with helping folks just like you get an appraisal that helps you get the PMI insurance removed.
