Pre-Listing Appraisals
REALTORS: Pricing a listing is one of the hardest, and perhaps, the most important task in residential real estate. If the asking price is too low, you might end up leaving money on the table; if it's too high, you won't tap into the right target group, will lose a lot of time and may then end up selling for even less. 

FOR SALE BY OWNER (FSBO): It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Extreme Measures will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value -- not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value report than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is an attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are veterans in helping clients just like you remove undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining or not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours. That only means you are paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the earlier you take care of a matter like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an expert appraisal from Extreme Measures is your #1 weapon.
