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

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at B & B Valuations, LLC 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 an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is 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, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are qualified in helping homeowners just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

If you live in an area that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes close by, your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are probably paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from B & B Valuations, LLC is your #1 weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

B & B Valuations, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
