Let A.S.A.P Appraisal Group help you lower your mortgage payment

Private Mortgage Insurance, or PMI, is an added insurance policy that many lenders ask homebuyers to buy when the amount being loaned to the buyer is more than 80% of the actual value of the property. Oftentimes, this added payment is folded into the monthly mortgage payment and is soon forgotten. PMI isn't necessary when the leftover balance of the loan - whether through market appreciation or principal pay down - falls below the 80% mark, making this very unfortunate. In fact, the Homeowners Protection Act (HPA) of 1998 was implemented by the United States Congress requiring lenders to remove the PMI installments when the balance is paid down to 78% of the original value.

A.S.A.P Appraisal Group will produce a statement regarding the value of your home, and the expense of the appraisal can usually be regained in a short amount of time because you'll no longer be paying the PMI.
