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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Southeastern Appraisal Group will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Challenging a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster 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 contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Southeastern Appraisal Group is your number one weapon.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled 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 house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're veterans in helping customers just like you delete undesirable PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. This can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also annoying from a cash flow point of view. Southeastern Appraisal Group can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you prefer a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a veteran appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had done before. Even though most appraisal reviews are commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners suspecting they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
