Desk Value Estimate
I take the last dozen MLS sales and pendings near your subject house and run the numbers against your subject house.
It's like the first step in an appraisal.
The result shows the value of your subject house in various states of condition and updating.
$100, 2 day deadline, "Rush!" add $25, 1 day deadline

Payment
Appraisal fees are collected when the appraisal is ordered. Work starts once the fee is collected.
When you submit your payment you are agreeing to this Appraisal Order:
This is an order for Price, Wright, and Dunn, Inc., to appraise the subject property.
 The value estimate is based on lack of Chinese drywall, major termite problems,
sinkhole activity, out-of-date piping and wiring, bad roof, foreclosure, short sale, etc.
If you know of any adverse conditions, please report them to me today.
 Canceling before the inspection or court appointment will result in a 2/3 rebate.
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment you will have canceled.
The appraiser’s compensation is not dependent on coming in at any particular value.
That is illegal (read the "Appraiser's Certification“ in any appraisal report).
The limit of liability recoverable from 
Price, Wright, and Dunn, Inc. and Kerry Silva,
if liability is proven, regardless of the actual damages caused, is the return of the paid fee.
An appraisal is the opinion of the value of a piece of property as of a certain date.
The appraisal is not a guarantee that any other person will have the same opinion.
Appraisers are certified. Appraisals are not.
