If you “just need to know what it’s worth” and the property is fairly straightforward, a low-cost “DesktopRestricted Appraisal might be right for you. Just call or E-mail if you have a question Mike@SFREAppraisal.com.

A Restricted Appraisal Report is for individuals familiar with the property and market area. It is not sufficient for bank mortgages, litigation, taxes and estate planning where the document will be relied upon by others. A “desktop” appraisal is a no-inspection service.

  • 15 business days: $975
  • 10 business days: $1,275
  • 5 business days: $1,750
