Real Estate Appraiser Fees For Santa Barbara County

Including Santa Barbara, Montecito, Hope Ranch, Goleta, Carpinteria, Santa Ynez, Summerland, Lompoc, and Santa Maria 

Like many other professions and trades there is no established fee schedule for appraisals. A fee quote is based on the complexity and the estimated time required to complete a specific assignment. A fee contingent upon obtaining a specific value is a violation of state and federal law of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).

The complexity of a particular assignment may be the result of a number of factors, including but not limited to the unique characteristics of the property, location, purpose and/or intended use of the report.

Hourly rates may be quoted for deposition, court testimony or consultation.
