I am not an appraiser but do have a rate-related questions for you pros out there. I own a home in north-central Franklin County that's roughly 2,800 sq. feet and sits on just under an acre of land. Approximately 1,380 s.f. of the home was built circa 1810 and contains very unusual, high quality and well-maintained woodwork - the remainder of the square footage was added in or after the 1950's. I'm not in a downtown area, but am about 4 miles outside of the county seat.
Can anyone tell me what I should expect to pay for a good re-fi appraisal by someone who's got experience and CE related to historic residential appraisals?

I'm not too far from you (Epsom) and I would charge in the $750 range.

Thanks for the info. And you have the experience I asked about and would provide the appraisal on the standard Fannie Mae form (in addition to any narrative required to explain unusual features, etc.)?

I do quite few historic homes. Louisburg, Oxford, and Warrenton in particular all have quite a few, and I have done a few in Wake Forest and Hillsborough as well. Is your home on the Historic Register?

No. High end-vinyl siding that looks identical to the original wood and is laid over the original wood prevents us from being listed which, frankly, I'm fine with.
