Let JAD Appraisal Services LLC assist you in lowering your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance policy that nearly all lenders ask buyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the homeowner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Oftentimes, this added payment is folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is quickly forgotten. This is unfavorable because PMI isn't required when the remaining balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% level. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was implemented by the United States Congress requiring lenders to do away with the PMI payments on most mortgages when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.

JAD Appraisal Services, LLC will provide you with a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the appraisal can often be regained in just a few months because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

On a daily basis, we analyze the difference in value things like an additional bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make. And we're experts in knowing how long properties are on the market.
