Each year, thousands of people in New Jersey purchase, sell or refinance their home. A lot of these transactions consist of a simple line item for an appraisal. Even though there are a budding number of automated home valuation processes that might seem less expensive than an appraisal, almost all lenders still call in a local expert because the stakes are very high. You might think that obtaining a mortgage is the only basis for getting an appraisal, but there are more instances when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional could be helpful.

Eliminating PMI for mortgage payments

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an extra insurance plan that most lenders ask homebuyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. More often than not, this added payment is lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. PMI isn't required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% level, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the United States Congress implemented a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) requiring lenders to eliminate the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

JWD APPRAISAL SERVICE, 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.

Fair and accurate estate liquidation

The death of a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Fair Market Value for the residential property involved. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing the highest degree of discretion.

Unlike wealthier individuals, most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to handle these matters. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, knowing the true worth of the real estate at hand is of essential importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've gotten a fair deal.
