Reasons to hire an appraiserThousands of people in Florida buy, sell or refinance their home each month. A lot of these transactions contain a simple line item for an appraisal. Almost all lenders still want a local expert because the stakes are very high, even though there are a growing number of automated home valuation systems that might appear more prudent than an appraisal. But is getting a mortgage the only reason to acquire an appraisal? Are there more cases when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional might be helpful? Absolutely.

Removing PMI will lower your mortgage paymentWhen the amount being loaned to the buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the property, most lenders ask buyers to buy an additional insurance policy. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. This additional payment is often folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is soon forgotten. PMI isn't necessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfavorable. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was implemented by the United States Congress that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.
If you'd like to eliminate PMI, A 3 Day Appraisal, Inc. can produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the appraisal can generally be regained in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Fair and accurate estate liquidationThe death of a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. We guarantee the utmost degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to handle these matters, unlike wealthier individuals. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, understanding the correct value of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten an honest deal.
