What does the mortgage appraisal fee depend on?


The mortgage appraisal fee is a fee commonly paid by the buyer to have the property he’s taking a home loan to buy appraised by a professional. The mortgage company is demanding the appraisal in order to extend a loan. The mortgage appraisal fee depends on the size of the property, current price, location, if it is an income generating asset, accessibility and distance from the appraiser’s location.

The buyer will usually not be allowed at the property for the time of appraisal. Later, they may be issued a copy of the report by the lender. The mortgage appraisal fee, though paid by the borrower, can be well worth several hundred dollars but might save you from later finding out you paid ten thousand more than the actual worth of the property.

Mortgage rates hit their lowest since 1955. Ask the home loan experts we recommend Quicken Loans how to take advantage of them.
