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

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at JTC Valuations are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. 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 property will attract buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down 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. At JTC Valuations, we're qualified in helping consumers just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from JTC Valuations is your strongest weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area. This can be be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow standpoint. An expert appraisal from JTC Valuations can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for accuracy, or do you need a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we will go out and check the subject and comparables. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may want to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
