For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experts in helping customers just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Lee county's assessment of your property

Lets say you live in an area that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is close to a declining area, your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view. MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have a veteran appraiser double-check it for preciseness or do you desire a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it 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.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
