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. Our professional appraisers at Capwell Appraisal Services are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's declining. This only means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Capwell Appraisal Services is your strongest weapon.

Appraisals to remove PMI

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. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Capwell Appraisal Services, we're veterans in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area. This can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow standpoint. Capwell Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you're in a hurry, 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 retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had in the past. While usually requested by banks, you may need to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
