We at Bain & Associates, Inc. understand the unique needs of a consumer seeking appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Bain & 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 very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract many interested buyers. The appraisal is something concrete to show your 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 assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Bain & Associates, Inc. is experienced in helping consumers just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say your house is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. The quicker 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. A professional appraisal from Bain & Associates, Inc. is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is near a declining area, your lender just may make the decision 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 inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. A professional appraisal from Bain & Associates, Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.
