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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred 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 property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experts in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Duval county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for efficiency?

If you're in a hurry, we'll 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 report you may have in your possession. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
