Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner (FSBO)

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. A preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your property, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc., we're qualified in helping folks just like you rid yourselves of unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenging Muscogee county's assessment of your property

Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of things like this, the better. An appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. is your strongest weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area.

Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with a professional appraisal.
