Appraisal Fees

Most appraisals (95%) for houses and condominiums in the metro area of San Diego range in price from $275.00 to $395.00.  The times when the fees are higher are when the properties are unique, exceptionally large, or are in a remote area.

We also provide a range of services to meet the needs of our clients.  Below is a list of some of our most common fee schedules.  Sometimes a client's appraisal requirements are not contained within the list, so please call us for an exact quote.
  • $395.00 - Standard Appraisal (homes or land) - This is the most comprehensive appraisal type and it includes a full inspection and full property and neighborhood descriptions in the appraisal report. This appraisal type is ideal for situations where there may be a dispute such as bankruptcy, divorce, bonds, etc.
  • $350.00 - Consumer Appraisal (homes) - This appraisal type has the same inspection and results in the same exact value as the Full Appraisal but it includes less description about the property and the neighborhood. This appraisal type is ideal for situations where you are familiar with the property and neighborhood and just want to know the value. The Full Appraisal form is designed for mortgage lenders and other third parties who will never see the property or neighborhood, and want as much information as possible to make lending decisions, to perform lien strips, etc. This appraisal could be ordered before buying or selling a property, for estate purposes, for family transactions, and more.
  • $325.00 - Drive-By Appraisal (homes) - This appraisal type includes an inspection from the street only. Ideal for situations where access to the property is not allowed or where a very general value is all that is required.
  • $350.00 - Desktop Land Appraisal - No inspection is performed and the analysis is based on your verbal/written description and/or online data sources only.
  • $275.00 - Desktop Home Appraisal - No inspection is performed and the analysis is based on your verbal/written description and/or online data sources only.
  • $25.00 to $300 - Living Area Certification - We measure your property and provide a certification as to its living area size and include a sketch for reference.
