For Sale By Owner/Pre-Listing Services

It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at CASA, Inc.(AKA) Caballero Appraisal Serv.& Assoc., Inc. 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 property will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very crucial as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your house's value, not just how much your home is worth. Potential 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 estimation than yours.

Need to remove PMI?

A preferred way to save money for homeowners is to get the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is down below 80% of the value of your property. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI eliminated from your loan. At CASA, Inc.(AKA) Caballero Appraisal Serv.& Assoc., Inc., we're experienced in helping folks just like you rid yourselves of undesirable PMI insurance.

An expert appraisal from CASA, Inc.(AKA) Caballero Appraisal Serv.& Assoc., Inc. is your chief weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.
