At C. Nathan King & Associates Appraisers, we understand the special needs of a customer in need of appraisal services. While our usual clients understand the appraisal process and standard reporting formats, you as a consumer will get an extra level of customer service in the form of an explanation of the process and even special consumer-friendly reporting forms if the assignment allows for them.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at C. Nathan King & Associates Appraisers 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 selling price so your house will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value opinion than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) removed from your mortgage loan is a fashionable money saver for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down 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 canceled from your loan. We're experienced in helping consumers just like you rid themselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

Challenge Tax Assessment

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if you live in an area that's declining. That only means you are going to pay more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. Getting an appraisal report from C. Nathan King & Associates Appraisers is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender may make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your home is in a declining area. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. C. Nathan King & Associates Appraisers can help you reinstate your HELOC.

Do You Need Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services?

Would you prefer a second opinion without the added cost and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Or do you desire a seasoned appraiser to double-check your appraisal for verity? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comparables. If you need it in a rush, we'll provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal report? C. Nathan King & Associates Appraisers can help you with that. Even though this is usually requested by banks, you may want to exploit this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
