We won't just tell you what you want to hear, we will tell you what you need to know.

It gives you something concrete to show the buyer. The appraisal is an independent third party's opinion of your property's price, not just you saying how much your house is worth. Interested buyers assume 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.

At Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., we're veterans in helping customers just like you rid themselves of unneeded PMI insurance.
