Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Turneround Appraisals are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Need to cancel PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is 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 clients just like you remove unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge property tax assessments
Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down. This only means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Turneround Appraisals is your chief weapon.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area.

An efficient appraisal from Turneround Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
