We at MFC Home Appraisals Inc understand the particular needs of a consumer in need of appraisal services. The appraisal process and reporting formats are relatively routine to our business clients like banks, lawyers, and accountants. But as a consumer,you can expect extra guidance and explanations through the appraisal process to more fully understand what we do and how we present the results of our analysis.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you most likely have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at MFC Home Appraisals Inc, will be objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers. It's something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just how much your home is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A fashionable money saver for homeowners is getting 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 down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At MFC Home Appraisals Inc, we're qualified in helping people just like you rid themselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in a region that's going down. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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. Getting an appraisal from MFC Home Appraisals Inc is your #1 weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

If your home is in or near a declining area, your lender may just decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be annoying from a cash flow point of view, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. MFC Home Appraisals Inc can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Would you wish a second opinion without the cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you want an expert to double-check your appraisal for precision? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps. If you're in a rush, we'll 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 in the past. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may desire to utilize this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your house.
