Thousands of people in Florida buy, sell or refinance their home every month. Many of these transactions involve a simple line item for an appraisal.

You might believe that obtaining a mortgage is the only reason to acquire an appraisal, but there are more cases when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional could come in handy.

Treadway Appraisal Company can help you get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage payment

When the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the property, most lenders ask home buyers to buy an added insurance plan. That policy is Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI. This added payment is often bundled into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. PMI isn't necessary when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was passed by the United States Congress requiring lenders to do away with the PMI payments on most mortgages when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.

If you'd like to do away with PMI, Treadway Appraisal Company will produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The price you paid for the home valuation can generally be offset in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

The 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.
