Why you should get an appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC

To a lot of people, an appraisal is simply a line item on the settlement sheet for a home purchase or refinance. Most lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are very high, even though there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation systems that might appear more practical than an appraisal. Is getting a mortgage the only reason you should get an appraisal? Are there also situations when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional could be helpful? Of course there are.

Get rid of 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, many lenders ask homebuyers to buy this supplemental insurance plan. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. This additional payment is often lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is unfavorable because PMI is unnecessary when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - dips below the 80% level. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to eliminate the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to get rid of PMI, Anderson Appraisal, LLC will provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home. The cost of the home valuation can usually be offset in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
