For Sale by Owner/Pre-Listing ServicesSince you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Jackson Claborn, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very important negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Challenging property tax assessmentsYour local tax assessor may have your house overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other homes close by. This means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Jackson Claborn, Inc. is your strongest weapon.
Appraisals to cancel PMIPMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. 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 unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.
HELOC recently frozen?If your property is in a declining area, your lender might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be annoying from a cash flow viewpoint, and bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Jackson Claborn, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.

If you're 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.
Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? We can assist you. Even though most review work is commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
