Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to 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. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. 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 folks just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is going down. This only means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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 an appraisal report from Parkway Appraisals is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is near a declining area, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint. Parkway Appraisals can provide you with an expert appraisal that will help you reinstate your HELOC.
