For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Gray Appraisal Services 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 a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

An attractive money saver for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is 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, which will make your monthly payments go down. Gray Appraisal Services is experienced in helping consumers just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Fayette county's assessment of your property

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. That only means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. The earlier 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 Gray Appraisal Services is your perfect weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is close to a declining area, your lender just might 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 harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow standpoint. Gray Appraisal Services can help you reinstate your HELOC.
