Reasons you should order an appraisal from JAMES HENRY CRUPI LLC.

To many, an appraisal just looks like one more thing in the long list of items for a mortgage or refinance. Even though there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation systems that might appear to be more economical than an appraisal, practically all lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are so high. You might believe that getting a mortgage is the only reason you should get an appraisal, but there are more times when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might be helpful.

Get rid of PMI to lower your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance policy that most lenders ask homeowners to purchase when the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the home. This additional payment is often folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is soon forgotten. PMI is no longer required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% level, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was implemented by the United States Congress requiring lenders to remove the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

JAMES HENRY CRUPI LLC. will give you a statement regarding the value of your home, and the price you paid for the appraisal can often be regained in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
