Real estate appraisal services for homeowners in the city of West Palm Beach and Palm Beach County
The top seven reasons why Florida homeowners hire Superstar Appraisal Services:
We at Superstar Appraisal Services understand the individual needs of a customer looking for appraisal services. While our typical business clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner (FSBO)Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Superstar Appraisal Services will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Challenge a property tax assessmentLet's say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. A professional appraisal from Superstar Appraisal Services is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
PMI Removal AppraisalsGetting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Superstar Appraisal Services, we're veterans in helping consumers just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is close to a declining area. This can be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Superstar Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesDo you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you desire a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Superstar Appraisal Services offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you need it immediately, we'll 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 report you may have in your possession. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
