Pre-listing Services/For Sale by OwnerIt's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Teton Appraisals & Consulting, 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 price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Challenge Teton County's assessment of your propertyYour local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other properties close by. That means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. 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 off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Teton Appraisals & Consulting, Inc. is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Appraisals to cancel PMIGetting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable money saver for homeowners. 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 removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Teton Appraisals & Consulting, Inc., we're experts in helping clients just like you get rid of unwanted PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Your lender may just choose 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. Not only can this be inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Teton Appraisals & Consulting, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesHave you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned professional double-check it for precision or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Teton Appraisals & Consulting, Inc. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you need it in a rush, 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 report you may have had done before. Even though 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.
