Let All State Appraisal Partners, Inc. handle your appraisal needs
To many, an appraisal is simply another cost on the break-sheet for a home purchase or refinance. Practically all lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are very high, even though there are an increasing number of automated home valuation methods that might appear to be more cost-effective than an appraisal. Is getting a mortgage the only basis for getting an appraisal? Are there also times when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional could be beneficial? Of course there are.
Dispute your tax assessment in Iredell County

When building your case, an appraisal from us is your best evidence. At All State Appraisal Partners, Inc., we're capable of assisting you in appealing your tax assessment.
Get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage payment
Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an extra insurance plan that most lenders ask home buyers to purchase when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the home. This extra payment is often bundled into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. PMI becomes unnecessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - dips below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was invoked by the United States Congress 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, All State Appraisal Partners, Inc. will produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The price you paid for the home valuation can usually be offset in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Determine a fair and accurate valuation for estate liquidation
The death of a loved one is a hard time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often calls for an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for the real estate involved. We ensure the utmost degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Unlike wealthier individuals, most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these issues. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, knowing the true worth of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've received a fair deal.
