Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Nordquist Appraisal LLC 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 valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete 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. Potential 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?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut costs for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At Nordquist Appraisal LLC, we're experienced in helping homeowners just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Allegheny county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a local area that's going down or is not appreciating as much as other homes close to yours. This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. The sooner you take care of things 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 a professional appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC is your number one weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
