Since you have an emotional attachment to your home, it's often very hard to be objective about it. The professional appraisers at Saxton Appraisals, Inc. 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 price to sell at so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal is very important as a negotiating tool once you have a likely buyer. The appraisal is something concrete to show the buyer. It's an independent third party's opinion of your home's price, and not just how much you think your home is worth. Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be much more likely to give credibility to an experienced appraiser's value conclusion than yours.
Appraisals to cancel PMI
PMI stands for Private Mortgage Insurance. An attractive way to cut expenses for homeowners is to get the PMI canceled from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments.

Saxton Appraisals, Inc. is experienced in helping clients just like you do away with unnecessary PMI insurance.
