Houston Appraisal Fees

Our real estate appraisal fees are broken down into two categories; Fees for Mortgages or Financial Transactions and Fees for Non-Financial Purposes. The reason for this separation is simple; appraisals for mortgage companies, banks and lenders usually require more post-appraisal work such as responding to lender conditions and supplying any additional information that underwriting departments may need.

If your are ordering more than one appraisal we will offer you a discounted rate. Most appraisal are completed in 48 hours or less* but if you need your appraisal even faster we offer a rush-order turn option of 24 hours or less* for an additional $100
