Why You Need A Home Appraisal

An Orlando property appraisal is a process where an industry professional will come to evaluate a real-estate property to determine a current fair market value. There are different reasons someone may request a reliable appraisal. With Sunbelt Appraisal, the appraiser will use current market trends, structural conditions, location, and other factors to determine the value of the property. Appraisals are obtained for many different reasons. Below are five common reasons to obtain a dependable appraisal.

• Buying A Home
• Refinancing or Equity Loan
• Applying For Other Loans
• Litigation Valuation
 • Property Taxes

Buying A Home Or Selling A Home

When buying a home, most lenders will require an appraisal of the property before the approval of lending. The appraisal will give the financial institution an idea on the value for collateral if the property has to be sold. Also during the buying process, the appraisal will help the buyer determine a fair market offer for the home. Sellers can also use an appraisal to determine a listing price for a property or to be used in conjunction with a relator to determine listing price. We, at Sunbelt Appraisal, pride ourselves on our knowledge of the market to deliver an accurate valuation of any property.

Refinancing or Equity Loan

Appraisals during refinancing and home equity loans are important tools for the homeowner. Refinancing and equity loans are determined based on the loan-to-value ratio. For example, if the value is low enough, then homeowners could avoid PMI because the lender may view the loan as less of a risk, or a better loan-to-value ratio could help obtain a lower interest rate. Appraisal values are used to determine the loan amount for equity loans. The more loan-to-value ratio, the more an individual may qualify to borrow. Therefore, it is important to get an accurate appraisal from a reputable company. Sunbelt Appraisal provides high-quality appraisals on a variety of real-estate.
