We at Precision Appraisal Group, LLC understand the unique needs of a customer looking for appraisal services.

But as a general consumer,we will give you extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we present our conclusions.
For Sale By Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing Services
Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Precision Appraisal Group, LLC are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Appraisals to cancel PMI
An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are qualified in helping consumers just like you rid themselves of unwanted PMI insurance.
Challenge Tax Assessment
Lets say you live in a region that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Precision Appraisal Group, LLC is your number one weapon.
Recently got a freeze your HELOC?
Your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Precision Appraisal Group, LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services
Have you just accepted a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a veteran appraiser double-check it for verity or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Precision Appraisal Group, LLC offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you're in a rush, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may wish to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
