We at Appraisers of NE Ohio understand the particular needs of a customer seeking appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser 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 property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested 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 opinion than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is to get 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 house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are qualified in helping customers just like you remove unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenging Summit county's assessment of your property
Lets say you live in a local area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting an expert appraisal from Appraisers of NE Ohio is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Your lender just may make the decision 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 be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow angle. Appraisers of NE Ohio can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Would you prefer a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a professional to double-check your appraisal for verity? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you need it immediately, 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 report? Appraisers of NE Ohio can help you with that. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
