Let David Hesidenz Appraisals serve your appraisal needs

To a lot of us, an appraisal is simply another fee on the break-sheet for a home sale or refinance. And even though there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation methods that might appear to be more prudent than an appraisal, practically all lenders still need a local expert because the stakes are very high. Is obtaining a mortgage the only reason to acquire an appraisal? Are there additional times when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional might be helpful? Absolutely.

Eliminating PMI for mortgage payments

When the amount being loaned to the buyeris more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate, many lenders ask buyers to purchase this supplemental insurance plan. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. Since the added payment is usually folded into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. PMI is no longer required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - dips below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to do away with PMI, David Hesidenz Appraisals can give you a statement regarding the value of your home. The cost of the home valuation can usually be offset in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Settle a divorce with fewer hang-ups

A divorce is often complicated by the difficult decision of who gets the property, and it can be a very daunting experience for both parties. Regardless of the situation, it's a good idea to get an appraisal from David Hesidenz Appraisals so both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their home.

The parties will have a better idea of what price to set, if they want to sell the home. And if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've received a fair assessment.

Determine a fair and accurate valuation for estate liquidation

The death of a loved one is a painful 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. We guarantee the highest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these affairs, unlike wealthy individuals. And since a home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, understanding the true value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've received an honest deal.
