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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Regional Real Estate Appraisal Service LTD. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. 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 house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Challenge Rockland County's assessment of your property

If you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're 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 a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Regional Real Estate Appraisal Service LTD. is your best weapon.

Need to remove PMI?

A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting 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 amount 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. We're seasoned in helping people just like you rid themselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow point of view. Regional Real Estate Appraisal Service LTD. can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you need a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Regional Real Estate Appraisal Service LTD. can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have in your possession. Although most review work is requested by lenders, homeowners suspecting they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are wise to invest in a second opinion.
