Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is a crucial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your property will attract interested buyers. It gives you something tangible to show your buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just you saying how much you think your house is worth. Potential buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your house and will be much more likely to give credibility to a seasoned appraiser's value opinion than yours.
Need to remove PMI?
Getting the PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) eliminated from your mortgage loan is a fashionable way to cut costs for homeowners. Once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to the lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. We are experts in helping clients just like you remove unwanted PMI insurance.

When challenging your property tax assessment, getting an appraisal report from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is your best weapon.
