We at Herrin Appraisal Company understand the special needs of a homeowner looking for appraisal services.

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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Herrin Appraisal Company will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, 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 consumers just like you delete unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that is going down or not appreciating as much as other homes close by. This only means you're most likely 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. An appraisal report from Herrin Appraisal Company is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender may just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is close to a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be annoying from a cash flow point of view, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Herrin Appraisal Company can provide you with efficient appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned expert double-check it for precision or do you want a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you're in a hurry, 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. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
