We at Alpha One Real Estate Services, LLC understand the individual needs of a consumer after appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Alpha One Real Estate Services, LLC, 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 interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a popular 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 a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Alpha One Real Estate Services, LLC, we're experts in helping people just like you abolish unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. That means you're most likely paying 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. Getting a professional appraisal from Alpha One Real Estate Services, LLC is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow standpoint. Alpha One Real Estate Services, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
