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. The professional appraisers at Atlantic Appraisals Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show your 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 assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value report than yours.


Challenge a property tax assessment

Let's say your home is not appreciating as much as other homes close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only 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 sooner you take care of things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Atlantic Appraisals Inc. is your number one weapon.


Need to cancel PMI?

A popular money saver for homeowners is to get 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 down 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, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping customers just like you rid yourselves of unneeded PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near 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 annoying from a cash flow standpoint. Atlantic Appraisals Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.


Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? Atlantic Appraisals Inc. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you need it ASAP, 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? Atlantic Appraisals Inc. can help you with that. Even though most review work is commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners suspecting they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
