Check out the top 7 reasons Texas homeowners need Anew Real Estate Appraisal:
At Anew Real Estate Appraisal, we understand the particular needs of a customer looking for appraisal services.

For Sale by Owner (FSBO)/Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's market value, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value assessment than yours.
Challenge property tax assessmentsLet's say your home is not appreciating as much as other properties nearby -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Anew Real Estate Appraisal is your perfect weapon.
Appraisals to remove PMIGetting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Anew Real Estate Appraisal is experienced in helping folks just like you delete unnecessary PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area. This can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also disadvantageous from a cash flow angle. An expert appraisal from Anew Real Estate Appraisal can help you reinstate your HELOC.
Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?Do you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps 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 help with that too. Even though most appraisal reviews are requested by lenders for quality control, homeowners that have reason to believe they've been the victim of mortgage fraud are wise to invest in a second opinion.
