Let Tristate Appraisers, LLC. assist you in lowering your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an added insurance plan that nearly all lenders ask home owners to buy when the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. This additional payment is often lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is damaging because PMI isn't required when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls 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 remove the PMI installments when the loan-to-value ratio conditions have been met.

If you'd like to get rid of PMI, Tristate Appraisers, LLC. can give you a statement regarding the value of your home. The expense of the appraisal can generally be offset in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Fair and accurate estate liquidation with Tristate Appraisers, LLC.Settling an estate

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often entails an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. We guarantee the maximum degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

Unlike wealthy individuals, most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these affairs. And since a home or other property often makes up a disproportionate share of the total estate value, understanding the precise value of the real estate at hand is of vital importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've received an honest deal.

Sell your home quickly at the right price

Whether you decide to sell your home on your own or use the assistance of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal will help you make a better educated decision when determining your asking price. Separate from a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what price the house sells for. The price we charge isn't contingent upon the value we come up with, but rather they rest on our efforts to complete the appraisal.

We determine the difference in value items like an extra bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make on a daily basis. Getting a professional appraisal is a trusted way to decide what improvements will add value and what a suitable sales price is for your home - so you don't come up short or have your house on the market an unnecessarily long time - because we're experts in knowing how long properties are one the market.
