Let Double J Appraisals, LLC. take care of your appraisalTo a lot of us, an appraisal is simply another fee in the long list of items for a home sale or refinance.

But is obtaining a mortgage the only reason to get an appraisal? Are there also cases when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional could come in handy? Absolutely.

Let Double J Appraisals, LLC. assist you in lowering your mortgage paymentPrivate Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance plan that most lenders ask home owners to buy when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. More often than not, this extra payment is lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. PMI becomes unnecessary when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was approved by the United States Congress requiring lenders to dismiss the PMI installments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.
Double J Appraisals, LLC. can produce a statement regarding the value of your home, and the cost of the home valuation can usually be regained in a short amount of time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

If the parties need to sell the home, they'll have a better idea of what price to set. And on the flip side, if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've gotten a fair evaluation.
Fair and accurate estate liquidationThe loss of a loved one is a painful time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often calls for an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing the utmost degree of discretion.
Unlike wealthier individuals, most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these issues. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, understanding the precise value of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've received a fair deal.
