Appraisal services for View Park and Los Angeles County homeowners
Check out the top seven reasons California homeowners hire Accu Value Appraisals:
At Accu Value Appraisals, we understand the unique needs of a customer looking for appraisal services. While our typical business clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
For Sale by Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Accu Value Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Challenge Los Angeles County's assessment of your propertyLet's say you live in a local area that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you are 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. Getting an expert appraisal from Accu Value Appraisals is your best weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
PMI Removal AppraisalsPMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Accu Value Appraisals, we're experts in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area. This can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow angle. Accu Value Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?Would you wish 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? An appraiser from Accu Value Appraisals can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you're in a rush, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.
We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. While typically requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
