Reasons someone would use the services of Roler Appraisal ServicesTo a lot of us, an appraisal is simply a line item on the settlement sheet for a mortgage or refinance. Nearly all lenders still want a local expert because the stakes are very high, even though there are a developing number of automated home valuation systems that may appear to be more practical than an appraisal. You might believe that obtaining a mortgage is the only reason to get an appraisal, but there are additional instances when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional could be helpful.

How can you do away with PMI to lower your mortgage payment?Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an added insurance policy that nearly all lenders ask homebuyers to purchase when the amount being loaned to the home buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Oftentimes, this additional payment is folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. This is bad because PMI is unnecessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - decreases below the 80% level. In fact, the United States Congress invoked 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.
Roler Appraisal Services can produce a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the home valuation can usually be regained in little time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
Settling a divorce with less stressA divorce is often complicated by the difficult decision of who maintains the property, and it can be an especially heartbreaking occurrence for both parties. Regardless of the situation, it's wise to get an appraisal from Roler Appraisal Services so both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their home.
If the parties need to sell the home, they'll have a clearer picture of what price to set. And on the flip side, if a "buyout" is the chosen option, both parties will feel like they've gotten a fair assessment.
Settling an estate with peace of mindLosing a loved one is a difficult time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often requires an appraisal to establish Market Value for the real estate involved. We guarantee the highest degree of discretion, as we're bound with confidentiality by the ethics provision within the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
Most Americans do not have dedicated estate planners or executors to take care of these matters, unlike wealthier individuals. And seeing that a home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, knowing the true value of the real estate at hand is of vital importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten a fair deal.
