The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, not just how much you think your home is worth. Potential buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value estimation than yours.

Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. is experienced in helping homeowners just like you rid yourselves of unneeded PMI insurance.
