We at David Hesidenz Appraisals understand the unique needs of a consumer seeking appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because you probably have an emotional attachment to 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 price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the 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 you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. David Hesidenz Appraisals is veterans in helping consumers just like you dismiss unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Butler county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you are paying more taxes than you should. 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from David Hesidenz Appraisals is your number one weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is close to a declining area, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow point of view. A professional appraisal from David Hesidenz Appraisals can help you reinstate your HELOC.
