PMI Removal Will Lower Your Mortgage Payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an additional insurance policy that most lenders ask home buyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. This extra payment is often bundled into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. PMI isn't required when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfavorable. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to remove the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to do away with PMI, Frontline Appraisals, LLC can provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home. The price you paid for the appraisal can often be regained in a short amount of time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Settle A Divorce With Less Stress

A divorce is often complicated by the hard decision of who maintains the property, and it can be a particularly heartbreaking experience for both parties. So that both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their home, it's a good idea to order an appraisal from Frontline Appraisals, LLC regardless of the situation.

The parties will have a clearer picture of what price to set if they need to sell the home. If a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've gotten a fair assessment.

Estate Liquidation

Losing a loved one is a hard time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Market Value for the residential property involved. We ensure the highest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Many people don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to manage these matters. A home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, so knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing that they've gotten a fair deal.

We Can Help You With Relocations

We know the headaches associated with an employee relocation. We take great care in organizing a convenient appointment time for the appraisal inspection. During our detailed process, we encourage relocating employees to provide input on the characteristics and any recent changes of their property. 

Sell Quickly At The Right Price

Whether you decide to sell your home on your own or with the help of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal can help you make a better educated decision when determining your selling price. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike real estate agents. Our fees are based on our efforts to complete the appraisal report and not a percentage of the sales price.

On a daily basis, we analyze the difference in value items such as an additional bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make. Obtaining a professional appraisal is a reliable way to determine what improvements will add value and what an appropriate sales price is for your home.
