Let REVARI (Real Estate Valuation and Research Inc.) serve your appraisal needs
To many, an appraisal is simply a line item in the long list of items for a mortgage or refinance. And while there are a budding number of automated home valuation methods that may seem cheaper than an appraisal, the majority of lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are very high. You might assume that securing a mortgage is the only reason to get an appraisal, but there are more instances when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might come in handy.

Getting rid of your PMI for mortgage payments
Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance policy that many lenders ask homebuyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Since the extra payment is usually lumped into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. This is bad because PMI is no longer required when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% level. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was implemented by the United States Congress requiring lenders to remove the PMI installments 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.) will produce a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the appraisal can usually be recovered in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

A divorce is a very traumatic event for the parties involved, and it is often further complicated by the troublesome decision of who gets the house.

Determine a fair and accurate valuation for estate liquidation
The loss 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 real estate involved. The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing the fullest degree of discretion.
Unlike wealthy individuals, most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these issues. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an unequal share of the total estate value, knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties walk away knowing they've gotten a fair deal.

On a daily basis, we determine the difference in value things like an additional bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make.
