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 McCormick Appraisal & Real Estate 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 crucial negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's market value, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close by. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner 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. Getting an appraisal report from McCormick Appraisal & Real Estate is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

PMI Removal Appraisals

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At McCormick Appraisal & Real Estate, we're experienced in helping folks just like you abolish undesirable PMI insurance.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area. Not only can this be unsuitable from a cash flow point of view, but it can be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from McCormick Appraisal & Real Estate can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Provide Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Do you need a seasoned expert to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? McCormick Appraisal & Real Estate offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables. If you need it ASAP, we'll provide you with a 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 you may have had in the past. Although most review work is requested by lenders, homeowners that have reason to believe they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
