Let JAMES HENRY CRUPI LLC. take care of your appraisal needs

To many, an appraisal just looks like a line item on the break-sheet for a home purchase or refinance. Practically all lenders still call in a local expert because the stakes are so high, even though there are a multiplying number of automated home valuation systems that may seem more practical than an appraisal. Is getting a mortgage the only basis for getting an appraisal? Are there additional instances when the services of a licensed, independent real estate professional might be beneficial? Absolutely.

PMI removal to reduce your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an extra insurance policy that many lenders ask homebuyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the homebuyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the home. Seeing that added payment is usually folded into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. PMI is no longer required when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the United States Congress passed a law in 1998 (the Homeowners Protection Act of 1998) that requires lenders to do away with the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

JAMES HENRY CRUPI LLC. can give you a statement regarding the value of your home, and the cost of the home valuation can often be recovered in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Determine an accurate and fair valuation for estate liquidation

The ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) binds us with confidentiality, guaranteeing the maximum degree of discretion.

Most Americans don't have dedicated estate planners or executors to handle these matters, unlike wealthier individuals. A home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, so understanding the true worth of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten an honest deal.
