The professional appraisers at Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. will tell you what you need to know -- not just what you want to hear. We are objective.

Interested buyers know that you have an emotional attachment to your home and will be more likely to give credibility to a professional appraiser's value judgement than yours.
Appraisals to remove PMI

Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is down below 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to a lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. At Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc., we're seasoned in helping clients just like you remove unneeded PMI insurance.
