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. Our professional appraisers at Paradigm Appraisal Group, Inc are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. 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 an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Paradigm Appraisal Group, Inc is experienced in helping people just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging Harris county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other properties close by. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Paradigm Appraisal Group, Inc is your #1 weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view. Paradigm Appraisal Group, Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
