At Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC, we understand the special needs of a consumer looking for appraisal services. While our usual business clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get extra service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale by Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's market value, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Challenging property tax assessments

Let's say your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close by -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. An expert appraisal from Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC is your chief weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Appraisals to remove PMI

A preferred money saver for homeowners is getting the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC is experienced in helping folks just like you get rid of unwanted PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender just might 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 from a cash flow viewpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just received a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned expert double-check it for accuracy or do you desire a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Atlantic Appraisal Solutions, LLC offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comparables in question. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide 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 usually requested by banks, you may need to take advantage of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
