At Parkway Appraisals, we understand the unique needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services. Our business practices and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like lenders, attorneys, and CPAs. As our non-traditionalclient, you can expect extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more clearly understand what we do and how we present our findings.

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 Parkway Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are experts in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. Getting a professional appraisal from Parkway Appraisals is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow point of view, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Parkway Appraisals can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Parkway Appraisals can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can 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. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
