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

Since you have an emotional attachment to your house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at DANIEL I KANDEL will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your house's price, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value assessment than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a popular way to cut costs for homeowners. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. We're seasoned in helping people just like you get rid of unneeded PMI insurance.

Challenge Broward county's assessment of your property

Lets say you live in a local area that is going down -- your local tax assessor may have your house overvalued. That only means you're probably paying more taxes than you should. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the quicker you take care of things like this, the better. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal from DANIEL I KANDEL is your #1 weapon.

Was your HELOC recently frozen?

This can this be difficult and inconvenient from a cash flow point of view, and negative on your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. DANIEL I KANDEL can help you reinstate your HELOC.
