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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own 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 buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Lallier Appraisal Group LLC, we're seasoned in helping consumers just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Franklin county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other houses nearby. This means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Lallier Appraisal Group LLC is your perfect weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow viewpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Lallier Appraisal Group LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
