Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since 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 selling price so your home will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value report than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experienced in helping homeowners just like you abolish unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Northern Arizona Appraisal, Inc. is your perfect weapon.
