How Long Does A Home Appraisal Take?

home appraiser in mesa

Depending on the size of the home, an appraiser can spend anywhere from 1 to 4+ hours at your home, and additional time at the office completing the appraisal report.

During the appraiser’s visit - also known as the appraisal inspection, the appraiser will:

  • Visit each room of the home
  • Sketch the property complete with measurements
  • Take pictures of the interior and exterior
  • Take notes of rooms, features, upgrades and more

To effectively inspect a property, the appraiser could spend anywhere from 1 to 4+ hours at your home depending on the size of the home and property.

Once the inspection is done, the appraisal is not yet complete. An appraiser now needs to take the information collected from their visit and compile it into an appraisal report with data from your home and comparable home sales and listings, along with a quality rating and a valuation of the home’s worth.

The office work after the appraisal inspection can take anywhere from 2-48 hours or more depending on the complexity of the property being appraised.
