For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your home because of your emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Lynn M Brown LLC, are objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's value, and 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 an experienced appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A fashionable money saver 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". Once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your home, in most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We're experts in helping folks just like you delete unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge a property tax assessment

Lets say you live in an area that's declining -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you're 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. A professional appraisal from Lynn M Brown LLC is your best weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is close to a declining area. This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from Lynn M Brown LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Have you just gotten a copy of your appraisal and you would wish to have a seasoned professional double-check it for verity or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? We can go out and check the subject and comps in question in a field review. Or, if you're in a hurry, we can provide you with a 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 done before. While typically requested by banks, you may wish to make use of this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
