For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
It's often difficult to be objective about your own home due to emotional attachments. An Appraiser remains objective and offers an impartial and unbiased, professional analysis. Having a professional appraisal in hand is a valuable negotiating tool once you've secured a potential buyer. It offers an independent, third party's opinion of your home's value. As potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home, they will be far more likely to lend credibility to a professional Appraiser's Opinion of Value over your own.
Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) Removal
A popular money saver for homeowners is to remove the Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) from their mortgage loan. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will lessen your monthly payments.
