Here are the top seven reasons Florida homeowners need Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC:
At Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC, we understand the special needs of a homeowner after appraisal services. While our typical business clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner (FSBO)Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Challenge a property tax assessmentYour local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is declining or not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better. Getting a professional appraisal from Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
Need to remove PMI?PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're qualified in helping consumers just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?Your lender just 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. This can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint. Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Dawson Appraisal Services, LLC offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables in question. 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.
We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. While typically requested by banks, you may need to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
