Appraisal Fees & Policies

Our appraisal fees are competitive in the industry and based on an hourly rate.


All estimated fees will be agreed upon in the form of a ‘not to exceed’ contract before any work has begun. A retainer deposit is due prior to or at the time of on-site inspection. Once the report is complete, SAA will invoice the client with the balance. Once the balance is paid, the client will receive a PDF copy of the report to their email and a hardcopy report sent to their mailing address, if needed.


Fees are NEVER charged as a percentage of the appraised value. This is an unethical practice; therefore, the fees are standard and without consideration of the value of the appraised property.
