Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. It's something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much your home is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are experts in helping consumers just like you do away with unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Plymouth county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that is going down. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. The earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. A professional appraisal from South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is in or near a declining area, your lender may choose 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 difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. South Shore Realty Advisors, Inc can help you reinstate your HELOC.
