Reasons To Get An Appraisal

Each year, countless appraisals are completed for individuals in the United States. Appraisals are completed in the process of buying or selling a home, or in the process of refinancing a home. Each of these appraisals are helping families achieve their American Dream of homeownership. It’s an understood important part of the financing process of homeownership. It allows an expert to assure a buyer is not spending too much on a property.

But there are many other reasons to get an appraisal! There are times that having a certified independent real estate appraiser come in handy! Such times would include:

-Estate Settlement

-Divorce Settlement

-PMI Removal


Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in the amount your property is listed, or sold for while on the market. Appraiser fees are based on the efforts used to complete the appraisal report, and not a percentage of a sales price. Therefore, an independent appraisal can help a homeowner make the best decision on investing in a home and setting a fair sales price.
