Check out the top reasons Florida homeowners hire Jensen Appraisals Inc:
At Jensen Appraisals Inc, we understand the particular needs of a consumer in need of appraisal services. While our typical clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get an extra level of customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.
For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Jensen Appraisals Inc, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Challenge Tax AssessmentYour local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Jensen Appraisals Inc is your number one weapon.
Need to cancel PMI?Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home, 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 Jensen Appraisals Inc, we're qualified in helping homeowners just like you delete unneeded PMI insurance.
HELOC recently frozen?If your house is in or near a declining area, your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult from a cash flow point of view. Jensen Appraisals Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesHave you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would wish to have a seasoned expert double-check it for verity or do you need a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Jensen Appraisals Inc 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 report you may have had in the past. Even though most appraisal reviews are commissioned by lenders, homeowners that have reason to believe they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are wise to get a second opinion.
