At Parkway Appraisals, we understand the special needs of a consumer in need of appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own 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 very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- 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 an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Parkway Appraisals, we're veterans in helping people just like you rid yourselves of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Ashe county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier 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 #1 weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be troublesome from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Parkway Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
