We at William Trigg Appraisal, LLC understand the special needs of a homeowner in need of appraisal services. Our usual business clients understand the appraisal process and the usual "products" we deliver to them. But as a consumer, we'll be sure you get extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to understand what we do and how we report the results of our analysis.
For Sale by Owner/Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at William Trigg Appraisal, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Challenge property tax assessmentsYour local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that's declining. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from William Trigg Appraisal, LLC is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Appraisals to remove PMIGetting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At William Trigg Appraisal, LLC, we're veterans in helping people just like you remove undesirable PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from William Trigg Appraisal, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesWould you prefer a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? William Trigg Appraisal offers field reviews where we will go out and check the subject and comps.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. Even though most review work is requested by lenders for quality control, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
