Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Gold Coast Appraisal Group, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an expert appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Gold Coast Appraisal Group is qualified in helping clients just like you abolish unnecessary PMI insurance.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is in a declining area, your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We 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 need an expert to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can assist you. Although most appraisal reviews are commissioned by lenders, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
