Appraisal Services and Fee's
All services not listed below are quoted on a case-by-case basis. This includes requests such as Expert Witness Testimony, Multi-Family Residential, and Insurance Disputes / Defense.

  • $375 - Standard Appraisal (long form)
    This is the same form and inspection that a mortgage lender would order.  It is the most comprehensive appraisal type that is common in the appraisal industry. 
    Good for: All purposes, especially if there is a potential for a dispute.
  • $249 - Full Home Appraisal (short form)
    This appraisal utilizes the same methodology for deriving value, it results in the exact same value as the Full Home Appraisal (long form), and it includes an interior and exterior inspection.  The differences are that the property and neighborhood descriptions in the appraisal report are more concise and the house or condominium is not measured. 
    Good for: Estates, family transactions, before buying or selling, date of death, and more.
  • $225 - Drive-By / Exterior-Only Appraisal
    This appraisal inspection is performed from street and (usually) the appraiser does not leave their vehicle. The accuracy of the valuation is limited to what can be viewed from the front of the house, the MLS, public record, and any description provided by the client, which can include photographs.
    Good for: Estates, family transactions, before buying or selling, date of death, and more.
  • $249 - Desktop Appraisal
    This is becoming a more common appraisal method in situations where a wider margin of error is adequate or where privacy is important to the client.  Mortgage lenders have been ordering these appraisal types instead of Broker Price Opinions (BPOs).  Accuracy is limited to what is available in the MLS, public record, and any description provided by the client, which can include photographs.  The appraisal can not be relied on for many uses and may not be acceptable to 3rd parties.  Please contact us for more detail.
  • +$100 - Mortgage Finance Transactions (for banks, appraisal management companies, and other lending institutions - not common for individuals).  We charge an additional $50 for mortgage finance transactions because there are often multiple parties involved which increases our time commitment per appraisal.
* Please note:  While the significant majority of all appraisal orders fall under this pricing structure, custom properties, large properties, and rural properties MAY be higher.
