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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, 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. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Let's say you live in a region that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Abra, Inc. is your chief weapon.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are qualified in helping folks just like you abolish unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in or near a declining area, your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be troublesome from a cash flow standpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from Abra, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you like a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? An appraiser from Abra, Inc. can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. While usually requested by banks, you may need to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
