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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will 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 home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A popular way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping folks just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is declining. 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 faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An appraisal from NW Valuation Group, LLC. is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be difficult 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. NW Valuation Group, LLC. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity, or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? NW Valuation Group, LLC. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you need it immediately, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can help with that too. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
