For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Forte Appraisal Service, Inc. 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 house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Forte Appraisal Service, Inc., we're experienced in helping homeowners just like you get rid of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Loudoun county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that is declining or not appreciating as much as other homes close by. That means you are most likely paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. Getting an expert appraisal from Forte Appraisal Service, Inc. is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is in or near a declining area, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Forte Appraisal Service, Inc. can provide you with efficient appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
