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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, 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 selling price so your home will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down 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 homeowners just like you rid themselves of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other homes close by. That only means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The sooner 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 a professional appraisal from MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING is your strongest weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow point of view. An appraisal from MARC ANTHONY GIZZI APPRAISAL & CONSULTING can help you reinstate your HELOC.
