For Sale by Owner/Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your own house because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Maroun Bechara-MB Appraisal Services, Inc will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. A professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your property will attract buyers. It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's value -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value assessment than yours.

When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Maroun Bechara-MB Appraisal Services, Inc is your strongest weapon.
Appraisals to cancel PMIGetting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular way to save money for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Maroun Bechara-MB Appraisal Services, Inc, we're qualified in helping homeowners just like you abolish unneeded PMI insurance.
Was your HELOC recently frozen?Even if your specific property has not declined in value, your lender just might make the decision to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your house is in a declining area. Not only can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow angle, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Maroun Bechara-MB Appraisal Services, Inc can help you reinstate your HELOC.
