Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Alpine Valuation Services 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 likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

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

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. That only means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of things 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 Alpine Valuation Services is your perfect weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow angle, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Alpine Valuation Services can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
