Why you should get an appraisal from REVARI (Real Estate Valuation and Research Inc.)
Every year, thousands of people in New Hampshire buy, sell or refinance their home. Most of these transactions include a simple line item for an appraisal. And even though there are a developing number of automated home valuation methods that may appear to be more practical than an appraisal, nearly all lenders still need a local expert because the stakes are so high. You might think that securing a mortgage is the only reason to acquire an appraisal, but there are more situations when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional might be beneficial.

Getting rid of your PMI for mortgage payments
Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an extra insurance policy that most lenders ask homeowners to buy when the amount being loaned to the buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. Seeing that added payment is usually folded into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. This is unfortunate because PMI is no longer required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% level. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.
If you'd like to do away with PMI, REVARI (Real Estate Valuation and Research Inc.) can produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the appraisal can often be recovered in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Ascertain a fair and accurate valuation for estate liquidation
Losing a loved one is a difficult 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 ensure the maximum degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these matters, unlike wealthy individuals. A home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, so understanding the true worth of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've received an honest deal.
