For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your own house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Real Property Metrics, will be objective. We'll tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. 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. The appraisal is something concrete to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is 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. At Real Property Metrics, we're experts in helping people just like you get rid of undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your home not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours. That means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. The quicker you take care of a matter like this, the better, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. An appraisal report from Real Property Metrics is your number one weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your home is in a declining area, your lender might just make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow viewpoint, and damaging to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Real Property Metrics can provide you with an expert appraisal to help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
