Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Appraise Colorado Inc 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 price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We're qualified in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that is declining. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Appraise Colorado Inc is your chief weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also unsuitable from a cash flow viewpoint. Appraise Colorado Inc can provide you with a professional appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you prefer a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for verity? Appraise Colorado Inc offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables. Or, if you're 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 report? We can help with that too. While typically requested by banks, you may desire to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
