For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Kroepfl Advisors are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value estimation than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting 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 below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Kroepfl Advisors, we're qualified in helping folks just like you remove unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down. This means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The faster you take care of things like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Kroepfl Advisors is your number one weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow angle, and destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An expert appraisal from Kroepfl Advisors can help you reinstate your HELOC.
