We at Parkway Appraisals understand the individual needs of a homeowner in need of appraisal services. The appraisal process and reporting formats are familiar to our business clients like lenders, lawyers, and CPAs. As our non-traditionalclient, we will provide you with extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to better understand what we do and how we document our findings.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Parkway Appraisals will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that 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 remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. We are veterans in helping people just like you rid yourselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that's going down or not appreciating as much as other houses close by. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Parkway Appraisals is your #1 weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your house is near a declining area, your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be unsuitable from a cash flow angle, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Parkway Appraisals can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you wish a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want a professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness? We can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. If you need it immediately, we'll provide 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? Parkway Appraisals can help with that too. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to use this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
