She is very quick in responding, I left a message and she called back at once. She is a certified, licensed appraiser. Although she is not the one who did the appraising, she recommended another person to do it and I was satisfied with the job. Everything was fantastic. I wanted it done now, and they did it now.

I have been using ONCE appraisal since 2014. I have a self directed IRA. IRS requires to appraise the properties every year to compute the required minimum distribution. Kevin gave me discount on the appraisal because the appraisals are for 3 condos. He provided me the reports within three days.

I cannot speak to this individual's competence as a house appraiser since I ultimately have chosen not to hire him. In healthcare, we have a saying though that often times a brilliant provider can only get so far with poor bedside manner. The same applies to those in the service industry. This individual may be competent at his work (I do not know this to be true based on my interaction); however, he started our conversation with minimal information about the job I was interested in and indicated that I probably didn't want to hire him. He said it would cost me $550 for an appraisal of my property and he would do a very extensive job which others could do for cheaper if I only needed a written value for the house, but "you get what you pay for." When I asked if he could email me his credential and designation information, he became defensive and indicated that he received 5-6 such calls from people like me each day and so he couldn't spend an extensive amount of time on each person and that people typically hired him based on his website and what was discussed on the phone. He also went on to say that he typically work on complicated cases from lawyers that involved multimillion dollar properties or other complicated issues. He actually stated "I do not mean to be disrespectful..." In my experience, if someone starts a sentence with "I do not mean to be XXX," the opposite is in fact true. This is basic leadership communication training. So in a sense, my perception was that a job such as mine was small potatoes for him. Which is fine. If you only take a job that meets a certain dollar minimum or value for property, I don't have any problem with that, but then make that abundantly clear to the consumer, but do it in a friendly manner. Secondly, even if he's the best at what he does and has a skyrocketing IQ, this is clearly an individual who has low EQ and hasn't mastered the art of customer service. It's really unfortunate because his background is in line with what I was looking for, and his quote did not concern me, but his attitude made it clear to me that this would NOT be an individual I would like to work with. What ever happened to showing a little bit of kindness in dealing with potential customers?

Rick Phillips, responded to my search for appaisal services within hours. I wanted a quick turnaround and it was scheduled for the next day. Rick arrived promptly, conducted a thorough review of the house, collected pertinent data and delivered the completed appraisal within four days. The appraisal was thorough and his research uncovered five other similar house sales in the 2002 timeframe for a detailed comparison to develop the appraisal. He offers a senior citizen discount and I took advantage of it. Final cost was $375. I would recommend Appraisals Guaranteed for a professional appraisal.

I was getting my home appraised to have an idea of it's current value. It needs a lot of work and was curious about what an "as is" price might be. I contacted Aubrey and we set up an apointment immediately. He was on time and did a walk though with pictures. I had never had a home appraisal done before and he answered all my questions. He answered my follow-up questions by email and was very responsive and professional. I would definitely use his company again.

DO NOT hire this company for your appraisal. I made an appointment with Maz Surmaty to have my property inspected last Wednesday, and he indicated he would either be here Friday afternoon or Saturday afternoon, and would let me know which by Friday morning. No word until 3:45 on Saturday, asking if I would make myself available tomorrow at 1pm--no mention of the fact that he missed 2 appointments. Since he didn't even have the courtesy of letting me know he wouldn't show up or explaining the fact that he forgot me, I have no faith in this appraiser. I cannot imagine what a lousy appraisal this company must provide if they cannot even manage to show up or even cancel scheduled appointments. When you need an appraisal of your home, it is often time-sensitive. Avoid this appraiser at all costs unless you want a company that will book an appointment and then not honor it. Now I have to wait until Monday business hours to find a real appraiser.

I paid $375 for the appraiser to spend 10 minutes in my house. He promised me the appraisal within 2 days, and then I got a text message from the appraiser on the due date with an excuse about how the weather disrupted him completing the paperwork. Mind you, the house visit had already been done at this point. The excuse was that the weather was disrupting the running of comps. I received an unintelligible HTML file through some third-party site 5 days after the appraiser visited my home, could not open the file, and did not receive a prompt response when I told them this. The appraiser was a nice enough guy, but the execution is just horrible. As of this moment the appraisal is 3 days late, and I still do not have a usable copy. Do not use them unless you like late work and excuses.

Responded promptly to my phone message requesting service, was punctual and performed the Appraisal quickly. I received the report as promised, within 3 days. Kevin was courteous and well informed. He answered questions during the Appraisal and I was happy with his service. The price was slightly higher than several competitors offered, but Kevin was able to schedule our visit quickly, which was a nice convenience.

Mr. Connors was responsive and professional.  He responded promptly to my inquiry and was flexible in scheduling an appointment.  He was thorough in his evaluation and he was also able to provide insights into some things that I could do to facilitate the sale of my home. I think the price is in line with what other appraisers are charging and I am satisfied with the service.  I wanted an honest assessment of the actual value of my home in the as-is condition and  Mr. Connors was an excellent choice.

I contacted Rick on the phone. He promptly put me on his schedule and within days, he came out and walked the property. During the entire process, Rick was very professional, extremely knowledgeable and detail-oriented. The purpose of the appraisal was to dispute the county's assessment. I am very satisfied with the appraisal and will definitely seek out Rick's services in teh future. I highly recommend Rick! He took the stress out of the process.

Appraisers are professionals who provide unique insights regarding the current state of the local real estate market. 

A home appraisal is an important step during buying or selling a property. But how much does an appraisal cost?

The appraisers cost is typically $331 on average. Expect to pay between $280-$375 for an appraisal.

There are various factors that will affect the final bill. For example, location matters. Homes that are nearer to shopping locations, schools, and other areas of interest typically cost more to appraise than homes that are further away.

Items that are commonly appraised

Appraisers will typically consider the following key factors/items when determining the value of a property.

  • Location
  • Size: number of rooms, bathrooms, front/backyard size
  • Nearby structures such as other homes and access to roads/public transportation.
  • Demographics and the local real estate market
  • Components of an appraisal report

Each appraisal report is composed of 4 major sections.

Description of the property

  • This is a detailed description that includes boundary information, landmarks, and the property size.

Market insights

  • This section includes information regarding factors that affect the property value. For example, demographics and proximity to schools/shops may be included here.

Usage value

  • An appraisal also includes information on the specific purpose for the home. It will specify whether the property is for residential, rental, or re-development purposes.

Valuation of the home

  • Finally, the actual value of the home will be specified. There are several methods used - each will consider all the above factors and current market conditions.
