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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

A preferred way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Gregory James Company, Inc., we're seasoned in helping clients just like you delete unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Polk county's assessment of your property

Lets say you live in a region that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you're most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. is your best weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow angle. Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.

We Also Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned appraiser double-check it for verity or do you desire a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you're 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 you with a a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had done before. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may need to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
