For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at The Welter Appraisal Group 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 house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you're most likely paying more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from The Welter Appraisal Group is your #1 weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender might 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 troublesome from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. The Welter Appraisal Group can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd wish to have an expert double-check it for accuracy or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. Or, if you're in a rush, we can 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 a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have in your possession. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
