Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner (FSBO)

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC, are 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 a potential 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 your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's market value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Challenge Sauk County's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in an area that's going down. That only means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. The faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC is your strongest weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A popular way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experts in helping consumers just like you rid themselves of unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

Your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also inopportune from a cash flow angle. An expert appraisal from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned professional to double-check your appraisal for verity? An appraiser from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you need it in a rush, we can 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? We can assist you. Even though most review work is commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners suspecting they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are wise to get a second opinion.
