What is the cost of the appraisal?

A HomeAdvisor survey of home appraisal fees in 2018 calculates that the national average is $340. But, of course, that average is drawn from a broad range.

Typically, you’ll be lucky to pay less than $290 for an appraisal and unlucky to pay more than $550. However, if you require a particularly detailed report on an exceptionally large home with unusually complex valuation issues, you could easily end up paying four figures.

Don’t panic! Home Advisor says most people pay between $288 and $374. Considering you’re getting a trained and certified professional to undertake a site visit, carry out an inspection and write a report, you may think that’s pretty reasonable.
