Finding the right mortgage appraiser can be a daunting task. With so many different types of appraisers available, it can be hard to know which one is right for you and your needs. The good news is that RWA Appraisals can guide you in the right direction. At RWA Appraisals, we specialize in providing appraisal services for primary and secondary mortgages, as well as private mortgage insurance removal.
One of the most common types of appraisers is a primary mortgage appraiser. Primary mortgage appraisers are responsible for evaluating properties on behalf of lenders to determine loan eligibility and interest rate structure. They typically visit the site and take photographs, inspect the condition of the home, evaluate any improvements or renovations that have been made, research comparable sales in the area, and calculate market value as well as estimate depreciation or appreciation over time. A primary mortgage appraiser must also comply with all laws and regulations regarding lending practices.
A secondary mortgage appraiser is similar to a primary mortgage appraiser but typically looks at properties on behalf of investors who are looking to purchase homes or other real estate investments instead of lenders who are providing financing. While they may perform some of the same tasks such as inspecting the property and taking photos, they usually focus more on determining rental income potential or capitalization rates rather than market values when evaluating these investments.
Private mortgage insurance (PMI) removal appraisers are different from primary and secondary mortgage appraisers in that their goal is to help homeowners remove PMI from their loan without having to pay off the full balance first. This type of appraisal evaluates whether or not a home has reached sufficient equity levels so that PMI can be removed from an existing loan without having to pay off the principal balance first. PMI removal appraisal requires an inspector with specialized knowledge about this process who understands how to accurately assess a home’s value without making assumptions about future trends or other factors that could influence market values.
