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 Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Appraiser are objective. We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we'll tell you what you need to know. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely 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. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just you saying how much your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value estimation than yours.
PMI Removal Appraisals
A popular way to cut costs for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is 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 Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Appraiser, we're qualified in helping clients just like you rid yourselves of unnecessary PMI insurance.

Wentling, MA Certified Residential Appraiser is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.
HELOC recently frozen?
If your house is close to a declining area, your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can be be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out, and also troublesome from a cash flow viewpoint. An expert appraisal from Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Appraiser can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do you need a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for preciseness, or do you need a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal?

Or, if you need it in a rush, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.
