Need to remove PMI?

A preferred way to cut expenses for homeowners is getting the PMI removed from their mortgage loan, thus saving them money on their monthly payments. PMI stands for "Private Mortgage Insurance". Your monthly payments will go down once your mortgage loan amount is less than 80% of the value of your house. In most cases you can apply to your lender to have the PMI canceled from your loan. Nordquist Appraisal LLC is veterans in helping people just like you dismiss unneeded PMI insurance.

This only means you are most likely paying higher taxes than you should be paying. Since your property assessment may likely go up again in the next period, the faster you take care of a matter like this, the better off you'll be. An expert appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC is your perfect weapon when contesting your property tax assessment.

Recently got a freeze your HELOC?

Your lender just may decide to automatically freeze your home equity line of credit (HELOC) if your property is in a declining area -- even if your specific property has not declined in value. Not only can this be unsuitable from a cash flow angle, but it can be bad for your credit score since it may appear as though that credit line is maxed out. Nordquist Appraisal LLC can provide you with a professional appraisal that will help you reinstate your home equity line of credit.
