Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Matrix Appraisal Group will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver 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 is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. Matrix Appraisal Group is experts in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge Maricopa county's assessment of your property

Lets say your home is not appreciating as much as other houses close by -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Matrix Appraisal Group is your #1 weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might make the decision 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 this be inconvenient from a cash flow angle, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Matrix Appraisal Group can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with efficient appraisal.
