At Elite Appraisal Services, we understand the unique needs of a homeowner after appraisal services. Our business practices and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like banks, lawyers, and accountants. As our non-traditionalclient, you'll receive extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we report our findings.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Elite Appraisal Services will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are qualified in helping consumers just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Brazoria county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Elite Appraisal Services is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose 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 detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow angle. Elite Appraisal Services can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you desire a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Elite Appraisal Services offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
