Why you should get an appraisal

To many, an appraisal just looks like one more thing in the long list of items for a mortgage or refinance. Even though there are a developing number of automated home valuation systems that may appear more prudent than an appraisal, almost all lenders still need a local expert because the stakes are very high. You might believe that obtaining a mortgage is the only reason to acquire an appraisal, but there are more times when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might come in handy.

Dispute your tax assessment in Pinal County

Eliminate PMI to lower your mortgage payment

When the amount being loaned to the homeowneris more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate, almost all lenders ask home owners to buy this extra insurance policy. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. More often than not, this added payment is lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is damaging because PMI is unnecessary when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% mark. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to remove the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to eliminate PMI, Powers Real Estate Services, LLC will produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the home valuation can often be recovered in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Settle a divorce with fewer hang-ups

A divorce can be a very horrible event for both parties, and it is often more complicated by the challenging decision of who maintains the house. It's a good idea to get an appraisal from Powers Real Estate Services, LLC so both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their property, regardless of the situation.

The parties will have a clearer picture of what price to set, if they need to sell the home. And on the flip side, if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've gotten a fair evaluation.

Ascertain an accurate and fair valuation for estate liquidation

Losing a loved one is a hard time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for the real estate involved. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, ensuring the utmost degree of discretion.

Unlike wealthy individuals, most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these affairs. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of vital importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten an honest deal.
