We at Moye & Associates, Inc. understand the particular needs of a homeowner seeking appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Moye & Associates, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. Moye & Associates, Inc. is experienced in helping clients just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close by. That only means you're paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of things like this, the better off you'll be. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from Moye & Associates, Inc. is your number one weapon.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is near a declining area. Not only can this be difficult from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Moye & Associates, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you would prefer to have a seasoned expert double-check it for efficiency or do you desire a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Moye & Associates, Inc. offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables in question. Or, if you need it ASAP, 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.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal you may have had in the past. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
