We at Branch Appraisal Services, Inc understand the unique needs of a homeowner after appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Branch Appraisal Services, Inc will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much 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 professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to save money for homeowners is to get 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 is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Branch Appraisal Services, Inc is experts in helping clients just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

If you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting a professional appraisal from Branch Appraisal Services, Inc is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow angle, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Branch Appraisal Services, Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you like a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity?
