It's very hard to be objective about your home because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. A professional appraiser is objective and will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract interested buyers, a professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. It gives you something concrete to show your buyer. An appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's value -- not just you saying how much your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to an accomplished appraiser's value conclusion than yours.

Need to cancel PMI?

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to save money for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan is less than 80% of the value of your home. In most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI removed from your loan. Steven M Shelamer is experienced in helping people just like you abolish unwanted and unneeded PMI insurance.

We Offer Field and Desktop Appraisal Review Services

Have you just been handed a copy of your appraisal and you would wish to have a seasoned appraiser double-check it for precision or do you need a second opinion without the expense and delay of waiting for a whole new appraisal? In a field review we'll go out and check the subject and comps in question. Or, if you need it immediately, we can provide desk review and verify as many facts as we can, using online data sources as well as our own files.

We can also provide you with a retrospective review of any appraisal report you may have had in the past. Even though most review work is requested by lenders for quality control, homeowners that have reason to believe a prior appraisal wasn't above board are wise to invest in a second opinion.
