At Nordquist Appraisal LLC, we understand the individual needs of a customer after appraisal services. Our regular business clients get the appraisal process and the standard "products" we deliver to them. But as a general consumer,we will provide you with extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we present our findings.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about 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 important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your home will attract many interested buyers. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value report than yours.

Appraisals to cancel PMI

A fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated 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 amount is below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Nordquist Appraisal LLC is experts in helping consumers just like you do away with undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenging Allegheny county's assessment of your property

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house is not appreciating as much as other homes close by. This only 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 quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Nordquist Appraisal LLC is your perfect weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your house is in a declining area, your lender 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 inconvenient from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
