At Baseline Appraisal Services, we understand the individual needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services. The appraisal process and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like banks, attorneys, and accountants. Being a person not in the real estate field that most likely doesn't see an appraisal every day,we'll be sure you get extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more clearly understand what we do and how we report our conclusions.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Baseline 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 important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Baseline Appraisal Services is veterans in helping customers just like you abolish unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Baseline Appraisal Services is your number one weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A professional appraisal from Baseline Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you want a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide you with a 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 in your possession. While typically requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
