No. Appraisals usually start at $400.00, depending on the size and complexity of your property. If you are able to determine your property’s value easily, your Realtor® can give you an estimate of value at no charge. Realtors® and appraisers use the same comparable sales to arrive at value. However, if the property is complicated, has acreage or is income property, you should obtain a professional appraisal.
