Pre-listing Services/For Sale By Owner

It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a seasoned 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 is 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 are experienced in helping consumers just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Oneida county's assessment of your property

If you live in a local area that is declining or is not appreciating as much as other homes close by, your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. This only means you are probably paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from KEY INSIGHT is your chief weapon.

HELOC recently frozen?

Your lender might just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is near a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. This can this be difficult from a cash flow point of view, and harmful to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An appraisal from KEY INSIGHT can help you reinstate your HELOC.
