The old 1025 form is a good form for 2-4 unit properties and gives listings and rental information for the area in addition to recent sales.

The old 1004 form 6/86 this is an old form that was used for a long time and is multipurpose for single family, puds, condos and manufactured houses. It is obsolete for lender use but still a good form. This is the most complete form and offers the most information.

2055 Is a drive by appraisal form that can be used for non-lenders for an exterior appraisal only. It is a restricted use and not as extensive for information as a 1004 but is good when access is an issue.

A desk top appraisal is a very restricted use report and may not be used for lending or court purposes. It can provide information based on the local MLS and public records and a general opinion of value. It is good for people who are not interested in spending much money but want an unbiased opinion of value for their property.

The fees vary from form to form due to the amount of time and expertise involved in each one. Please see the fee schedule for the base fees.
