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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at AppraiseNM will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan 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're experts in helping consumers just like you dismiss undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that is going down. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from AppraiseNM is your #1 weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. AppraiseNM can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
