Typical Appraisal Fees

Like any service, appraisal fees are directly related to the amount of time the appraiser spends in providing the service. The amount of development time may vary from one assignment to another, even though the reports for different assignments may look similar. While an appraisal assignment involves both development and reporting of assignment results, the client sees only the appraisal report.

Standard “full appraisal” fees for typical residential properties start at $600, but may be increased for the following reasons:

  • Additional consulting
  • Expert testimony
  • Multiple structures
  • Complex properties
  • Large properties
  • Rural properties
  • Historical properties
  • Stigmatized properties

Consequently, a true “fee estimate” is most commonly and accurately provided to the client, once the specific property characteristics and assignment details have been communicated to the appraiser.
