We at Desert Sky Appraisers understand the special needs of a customer after appraisal services.

Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

Since you have an emotional attachment to your own home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Our professional appraisers at Desert Sky 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 price to sell at so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value assessment than yours.

PMI Removal Appraisals

An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are seasoned in helping consumers just like you do away with unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.

Challenge Maricopa county's assessment of your property

If you live in a region that is going down or is not appreciating as much as other houses close to yours, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you're paying higher taxes than you should be paying. 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 expert appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

If your property is in or near a declining area, your lender might choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) - even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be detrimental to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers can help you reinstate your HELOC.

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 want an expert to double-check your appraisal for accuracy? An appraiser from Desert Sky Appraisers can go out and check the subject and comps in a field review. If you need it immediately, we'll provide you with a desk review and verify as many facts as we can using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have in your possession. Even though this is typically requested by banks, you may desire to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your property.
