Check out the top seven reasons New York homeowners order from Bedinotti Associates:
We at Bedinotti Associates understand the particular needs of a customer looking for appraisal services.

For-Sale-by-Owner (FSBO) / Pre-Listing ServicesIt's very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. The professional appraisers at Bedinotti Associates 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 house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer. It's 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. Interested buyers assume that you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be far more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Challenging property tax assessmentsLet's say your house is not appreciating as much as other properties close to yours -- 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 off you'll be. When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Bedinotti Associates is your perfect weapon.
Appraisals to cancel PMIA preferred way to save money for homeowners is getting 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 canceled from your loan. At Bedinotti Associates, we're seasoned in helping folks just like you remove unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
Recently got a freeze to your HELOC?Your lender may just choose to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be inopportune from a cash flow standpoint, but it can be unfavorable to your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Bedinotti Associates can help you reinstate your home equity line of credit with an expert appraisal.
We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review ServicesDo you need an expert to double-check your appraisal for efficiency, or do you need a second opinion without the charge and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? Bedinotti Associates offers field reviews where we go out and check the subject and comps. If you're in a hurry, we'll provide 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 report? We can assist you. Although most appraisal reviews are commissioned by lenders for quality control, homeowners suspecting a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
