Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very valuable as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price -- not just how much you think your home is worth.

Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. We are qualified in helping folks just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.
