For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Shamrock Appraisals, Inc., we're experts in helping clients just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

If you live in a region that is going down or not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are going to pay higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. is your perfect weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just 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 be destructive to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow viewpoint. Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you like a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a professional to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. offers field reviews where we'll go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, we can 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? Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help with that too. While usually requested by banks, you may want to employ this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
