Let Appraise Colorado Inc attend to your appraisal needs

Every year, thousands of people in Colorado buy, sell or refinance their home. Most of these transactions consist of a simple line item for an appraisal. Almost all lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are incredibly high, even though there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation systems that might appear cheaper than an appraisal. You might assume that getting a mortgage is the only basis for getting an appraisal, but there are other instances when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional could be beneficial.

PMI removal to reduce your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an added insurance policy that nearly all lenders ask home owners to purchase when the amount being loaned to the home buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the home. Most often, this added payment is folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is unfortunate because PMI isn't necessary when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% mark. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was invoked by the United States Congress that requires lenders to do away with the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to do away with PMI, Appraise Colorado Inc will provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home. The cost of the appraisal can usually be offset in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Divorce settlement with less stress

A divorce is an especially horrible experience for the parties involved, and it is often even more complicated by the challenging decision of who gets the house. Regardless of the situation, it's a good idea to get an appraisal from Appraise Colorado Inc so both parties are fully aware of the true market value of their home.

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

Ascertain an accurate and fair 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 guarantee the utmost degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to handle these matters, unlike wealthy individuals. A home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, so knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of vital importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've received an honest deal.
