Nordal & Associates Real Estate Appraisal can help you do away with PMI to lower your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an additional insurance plan that almost all lenders ask homeowners to buy when the amount being loaned to the home buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. This extra payment is often lumped into the monthly mortgage payment and is promptly forgotten. PMI isn't required when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was approved by the United States Congress that requires lenders to dismiss the PMI payments on most mortgages when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.

Nordal & Associates Real Estate Appraisal can provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home, and the cost of the appraisal can generally be recovered in a short amount of time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

Let Nordal & Associates Real Estate Appraisal help you sell your home quickly at the right price

Whether you choose to sell your home on your own or with the help of a real estate agent, a professional appraisal will help you make a more informed decision regarding your selling price.

Our fees depend on our efforts to complete the appraisal report and and aren't related to the sales price.

Nordal & Associates will prepare an unbiased professional report that lenders will recognize as accurate and reliable.
