At Brent Turney Inc., we understand the unique needs of a customer looking for appraisal services.

For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your house because of your emotional attachment to it. Our professional appraisers at Brent Turney Inc. 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 property will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Potential buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to a qualified appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Challenge property tax assessments

Your local tax assessor may have your home overvalued if your house not appreciating as much as other properties nearby. That only means you're going to pay more taxes than you should. The sooner you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be, since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period. When contesting your property tax assessment, getting a professional appraisal from Brent Turney Inc. is your chief weapon.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) canceled from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut expenses for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We are seasoned in helping consumers just like you remove unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?

If your property is in or near a declining area, your lender may 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 viewpoint, but it can be negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. An efficient appraisal from Brent Turney Inc. can help you reinstate your HELOC.

We Also Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been given a copy of your appraisal and you'd prefer to have a seasoned expert double-check it for accuracy or do you want a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? An appraiser from Brent Turney Inc. can go out and check the subject and comparables in a field review. If you're in a hurry, 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.

Do you need a retrospective review of an appraisal? We can assist you. While typically requested by banks, you may need to exercise this service if you suspect mortgage fraud related to your home.
