Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Baseline Appraisal Services are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A preferred way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI removed 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 down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Baseline Appraisal Services, we're qualified in helping folks just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Rockingham county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. An expert appraisal from Baseline Appraisal Services is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow point of view. Baseline Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you would wish to have a seasoned professional double-check it for accuracy or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you need it in a rush, 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 a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
