At Appraisal Reports and Services, LLC, we understand the particular needs of a homeowner after appraisal services.

But as a general consumer, we will provide you with extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to better understand what we do and how we present our conclusions.
For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your own home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Appraisal Reports and Services, LLC, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Challenging Maui County's assessment of your propertyYour local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close by. This means you're going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Appraisal Reports and Services, LLC is your best weapon.
Appraisals to cancel PMIA fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Appraisal Reports and Services, LLC is qualified in helping customers just like you do away with unwanted PMI insurance.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?If your property is close to a declining area, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value.

Appraisal Reports and Services, LLC can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.
