6 Reasons you should order an appraisal from All State Appraisal Partners, Inc.
Every year, thousands of people in North Carolina purchase, sell or refinance their home. Many of these transactions contain a simple line item for an appraisal.

Is securing a mortgage the only reason to get an appraisal? Are there other times when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional could be beneficial? Of course there are.

Get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage payment
When the amount being loaned to the home owneris more than 80% of the actual value of the property, nearly all lenders ask home buyers to purchase this additional insurance policy. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. Very often, this extra payment is lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is unfavorable because PMI is unnecessary when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - dips below the 80% mark. In fact, the United States Congress invoked a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to do away with the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.
All State Appraisal Partners, Inc. will provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the home valuation can often be recovered in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
