Since you have an emotional attachment to your own house, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract many interested buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have an attainable buyer. It's something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your property's value, and not just how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be far more likely to give credibility to an expert appraiser's value opinion than yours.

We're seasoned in helping homeowners just like you dismiss unneeded and unwanted PMI insurance.
