If you need the appraisal for a home mortgage loan, the cost varies depending on the appraisal management company and/or lender you choose. In NV, most charge about $425.
If you don't need the appraisal for a home mortgage loan, it can be much less expensive. Average around $275 in NV.
If you need my company to do an automated appraisal (the same system banks use for valuation of foreclosed homes and short sales, I can do them for you here, usually at no cost).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions,

Every appraisal company has their own set of rates. What is the purpose of the appraisal? refi? cash purchase? finance purchase?

If you tell us a little more as to what you are trying to accomplish we may be able to assist you better.

Great question...

All appraisers charge differently. If you're a buyer, ask your lender how much the appraisal will cost with the appraisal company they work with.

If you're seeking an independent appraisal, you may shop around, and I've found appraisals to cost between $400-$600 for this sq/ft.

If you're even considering selling your home, contact me and I'll be happy to provide you with a free professional Comparative Market Analysis.

You used to be able to order the appraisal yourself from any licensed appraiser but then when the market crashed a lot of people were blaming the appraisers and no the appraisers are selected by the lender.

Appraisal costs vary depending on which appraisal company your lender orders the appraisal from. You the buyer only order the appraisal company of your choosing if it is a cash deal and you want an appraisal for your own piece of mind. With that being said I have seen them as low as $300 and as high as $475. The amount of the appraisal should be disclosed to you prior to the appraiser going out.

I hope this is helpful. Do you have a buyer's agent you are working with? If there is anything I can help with please don't hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Average cost of an appraisal is $400 to $600 dollars. Typically paid by the buyer and or the person borrowing money against the property.

Let me know if this helps or if you need anything further.

The appraisal process seems to cost the same for any size house so $400 is a good range for this type of service.

There is no one set fee. The appraisal is ordered by the bank that is doing your mortgage. Some of the banks charge a flat fee for appraisal of $475 and others charge more or less. So, you can use that as a ballpark figure as to what it might be.

A Las Vegas Home Built in 1971 needs a Home Inspection. An appraisal will not tell you the condition of the roof, the AC and any major foundation problems. I can help you find the right Home Inspector.

An Residential Appraisal will vary in cost from about $325 to $800 depending upon who completes it and the reason.
An appraisal for Probate Court is usually inexpensive and the Attorney of the Estate will order it.
A prelisting Appraisal can be done cheaply as it will only be used to set a value of a property.
An Appraisal used to determine a value for a loan company or investor will be about $500. That sets the value of the property to determine the amount an investor will loan for a mortgage.
An Appraisal for income producing property will be expensive as the Appraiser has to consider income and expenses over the life of the property.

In any case, typically, the company wanting the value orders the appraisal and the received appraisal is valid only for the company or person that ordered it. An appraisal is typically not transferred from one reason to another. It can be done if all parties agree to use a particular appraisal. There is usually a fee for the transfer.

There are variables in the process to allow the Appraiser to inflate the cost depending upon the work to complete the task, millage to drive to the property, and if the property or reason is unusual in any way.

Have more questions, call or e-mail be directly and i will provide you answers.
