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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC 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 crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A popular way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC, we're seasoned in helping clients just like you abolish unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in a region that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting a professional appraisal from REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is close to a declining area, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
