The appraisal process and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like lenders, lawyers, and accountants.

For-Sale-By-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services
It's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value report than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc, we're veterans in helping consumers just like you get rid of unneeded PMI insurance.
Challenge Plymouth county's assessment of your property
Your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if you live in a region that is declining or not appreciating as much as other homes nearby. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The quicker 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. An appraisal from South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?
Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in or near a declining area. This can this be disadvantageous from a cash flow standpoint, and detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.

Do you need a professional to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you desire a second opinion without the added expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?

If you need it in a rush, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
