For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at LHC 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 price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a popular money saver for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. LHC Appraisals is seasoned in helping consumers just like you delete undesirable PMI insurance.
