It's very hard to be objective about your house because you probably have an emotional attachment to it. Professional appraisers, like the ones at REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC, will be objective. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear. A professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer, in addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell at so your house will attract buyers. The appraisal is something tangible to show your buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers know you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value judgement than yours.

Appraisals to remove PMI

PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI eliminated from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. Once your mortgage loan amount is below 80% of the value of your house, in most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan, which will make your monthly payments go down. At REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC, we're experts in helping homeowners just like you abolish unwanted PMI insurance.

CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC is your perfect weapon when challenging your property tax assessment.

CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC can help you reinstate your HELOC.
