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

It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Gregory James Company, Inc. 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 a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Gregory James Company, Inc., we're veterans in helping clients just like you do away with unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenging Polk county's assessment of your property

Getting a professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
