For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price 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'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 you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are qualified in helping homeowners just like you rid themselves of unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a local area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Killo Appraisal Services, LLC is your perfect weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

An efficient appraisal from Killo Appraisal Services, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
