For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Matrix Appraisal, Inc, are objective. We'll 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 property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Matrix Appraisal, Inc, we're qualified in helping consumers just like you dismiss unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by. That only means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Matrix Appraisal, Inc is your number one weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow point of view, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Matrix Appraisal, Inc can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
