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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Compass Appraisal Management, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just you saying how much 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 professional appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove 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 down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are veterans in helping consumers just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that's going down or is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. That means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting a professional appraisal from Compass Appraisal Management is your #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender just might make the decision 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 be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow standpoint. Compass Appraisal Management can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for accuracy, or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Compass Appraisal Management can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you're in a rush, we can provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
