For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at R.M. Rose, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated 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 less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At R.M. Rose, we're qualified in helping people just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in a region that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. The earlier 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. Getting an appraisal report from R.M. Rose is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is in or near 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 inopportune from a cash flow angle, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from R.M. Rose can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? R.M. Rose can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may want to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
