Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC in La Valle are hired for diverse clients

To many, an appraisal is simply another cost in the long list of items for a mortgage or refinance. Almost all lenders still call for a local expert because the stakes are so high, even though there are a growing number of automated home valuation processes that might appear more cost-effective than an appraisal. You might believe that getting a mortgage is the only reason to acquire an appraisal, but there are additional situations when the services of a certified, independent real estate professional might come in handy.

Appeal your tax assessment in Wisconsin

It's quite possible you're paying too much in property taxes if you reside in an area where property values have depreciated. Property taxes are determined by a previous assessment of your house, so if values have declined in your neighborhood, you can appeal your assessment and save money. An appraisal from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC is your best evidence when building your case. At Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC, we're qualified to assist you in challenging your tax assessment.

Let Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC assist you in lowering your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is a supplemental insurance plan that almost all lenders ask home buyers to purchase when the amount being loaned to the home owner is more than 80% of the actual value of the real estate. Since the additional payment is usually bundled into the monthly mortgage payment, it is often forgotten. This is unfortunate because PMI becomes unnecessary when the remainder of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - goes below the 80% mark. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was passed by the United States Congress requiring lenders to remove the PMI payments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.

Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC can give you a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the home valuation can often be regained in a short amount of time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.

An appraisal from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC will help you settle a divorce with less stress

A divorce is often complicated by the difficult decision of who gets the property, and it can be a particularly heartbreaking event for both parties. It's a good idea to order an appraisal from Greater Wisconsin Appraisal Management LLC so both parties are completely aware of the true market value of their property, regardless of the situation.

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 mind

The loss of a loved one is a painful time in life, and settling an estate from a death, or probate, often calls for an appraisal to establish Market Value for the residential property 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 handle these affairs, unlike wealthy individuals. A home or other property often makes up an uneven share of the total estate value, so understanding the true value of the real estate at hand is of significant importance to ensuring disputing parties leave knowing they've gotten a fair deal.

A professional appraisal will help you make a better educated decision regarding your asking price, whether you choose to sell your home on your own or with the help of a real estate agent.

On a daily basis, we examine the difference in value items like an extra bathroom or a kitchen remodel can make. And we're experts in knowing how long houses stay on the market. So, getting a professional appraisal is a trusted way to determine what improvements will add value and what a suitable sales price is for your home so you don't come up short or have your house on the market for an extended amount of time.
