What kind of appraisal is done for a mortgage refinance in SC or NC?
When it comes to mortgage refinancing, many lenders are satisfied with a drive-by appraisal, also known as an exterior-only appraisal. This type of appraisal allows the appraiser to assess the property’s value based on an external examination without entering the home. Both the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) permit exterior-only appraisals for most refinances. At For What It’s Worth Appraisals our Horry County appraisers, Georgetown County appraisers, and Brunswick County appraisers have helped many SC and NC residents; call today, you’ll be glad you did!
What does an appraiser look for during a mortgage refinance in SC or NC?
During a refinance, the appraiser will evaluate various aspects of your property. This includes assessing the condition and size of your home, considering comparable properties in the area, examining the condition of home systems, assessing amenities, improvements, and remodels, identifying any negative features, and taking into account the location of the property.

Is it OK to be home during my appraiser’s visit?
In some cases, homeowners may be present during the home appraisal, and they can even provide the appraiser with valuable information about the property. Having a real estate agent present during the appraisal can be particularly helpful as they can address any questions or concerns that may arise. At For What It’s Worth Appraisals we also offer Real Estate Consulting Services, Call (843) 808-1533 for more information, we have appraisers in Brunswick County, Horry County, and Georgetown County, in SC and NC.
Is it worth getting an appraiser to remove PMI?
Obtaining an appraisal can be beneficial if you are looking to remove private mortgage insurance (PMI). Especially if the appraisal shows that you have at least 20 percent equity in your home. This amount of equity would enable you to cancel PMI on a conventional mortgage, leading to monthly savings on your SC or NC property. Call For What It’s Worth Appraisals, our appraisers in Georgetown County, Horry County, and Brunswick County, are local to each county and will be happy to help you with your private mortgage insurance (PMI)!
