See the top reasons South Carolina homeowners call on CAA Real Property Services, Inc.:
We at CAA Real Property Services, Inc. understand the individual needs of a homeowner after appraisal services. Our typical business clients understand the appraisal process and the standard "products" we deliver to them. But as a consumer, we'll be sure you get extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to better understand what we do and how we present our conclusions.
For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at CAA Real Property Services, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.
Challenging a property tax assessmentLet's say you live in a region that's going down -- your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued. This means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The earlier 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 CAA Real Property Services, Inc. is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Need to remove PMI?PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. At CAA Real Property Services, Inc., we're experienced in helping folks just like you dismiss unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Your lender might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in or near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be disadvantageous from a cash flow angle, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. CAA Real Property Services, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesDo you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for precision, or do you need a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from CAA Real Property Services, Inc. can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you need it in a rush, 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.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? CAA Real Property Services, Inc. can help you with that. Although most review work is requested by lenders, homeowners suspecting a prior appraisal wasn't above board are prudent to invest in a second opinion.
