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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Marshall Appraisal Associates (770) 517-3133 9770 , will be objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Challenging Cherokee County's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is going down. This means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster 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. Getting an expert appraisal from Marshall Appraisal Associates (770) 517-3133 9770 is your number one weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At Marshall Appraisal Associates (770) 517-3133 9770 , we're veterans in helping consumers just like you remove unnecessary PMI insurance.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be unsuitable from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Marshall Appraisal Associates (770) 517-3133 9770 can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for accuracy, or do you desire a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.
