An appraisal report is a comprehensive document that will give you a better idea of the property's value. A mortgage lender or any financial professional deciding on any loan, will require a home appraisal to ensure they are not lending more than the property is actually worth. The home you are purchasing or refinancing, acts as collateral, or guarantee, for the mortgage loan.

Appraisal fees are directly related to the amount of time the appraiser spends on the full assignment—from researching the market, to measuring the property, to analyzing the comparables and then, finally reporting the results. The amount of time can vary, even though the reports for different assignments may look similar. Appraisals for multi-unit dwellings, acreage and homes located in rural areas will usually cost more.

Reporting involving a variety of forms with typical tract residential properties starting at $400, and could be adjusted on a rising scale, for these reasons:
• Distance
• Rural properties
• Acreage
• Complex properties
• Large estate properties
• Historical or Specialty properties

Please contact us, so we may accurately estimate the fee required, once we know the exact property characteristics, reporting forms and assignment details.

Thank you.
