Unfortunately, if you are refinancing or purchasing a home by obtaining a mortgage loan through a lender, your home appraisal fee will probably be $350-$500 depending on lender internal requirements as well as their choice of an Appraisal Management Company (AMC); since 21 July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act created significant financial regulation over mortgage lenders and has also been more detrimental to the consumer in regards to more documentation and higher costs. The mortgage lending red tape has harmed good real estate appraisers trying to adhere to all of the numerous and onerous new regulations for appraisal opinion reporting. The government’s creation of more and more red tape for mortgage lenders has not been helpful but a direct detriment to consumers, home appraisers and the real estate industry as a whole.
