Looking to Buy or Sell a Property?

We offer several different appraisal services to help you understand your home’s market value so you can make decisions with confidence.  The Property Information Questionnaire is a great tool to prepare for your appraisal inspection, download your copy from the below button.  Give this to your Realtor if you are selling your home.

Pre-Listing Appraisal:  An appraisal designed specifically for sellers. Whether you are selling by owner, or with the help of a Realtor, this appraisal will help you understand how much your home should sell for. It is crucial to have a reliable value so as not to under list, or over price your home.


Price-Adjustment Appraisal:  Has your home been on the market longer than you think it should have? This appraisal can help you understand the current market, and if any changes in pricing might be necessary.


Price Verification Appraisal:  This appraisal will ensure you are not overpaying for your home and give you peace of mind for what may be your largest investment. This is a great appraisal if you are paying cash for a home since a bank appraisal will not be required.


Second Opinion of Value:  When you buy or refinance your home your lender will likely utilize an Appraisal Management Company (AMC) to source your appraiser. AMC’s take the appraisal fee charged to you by your lender, pay a portion to the appraiser, and keep the rest. The vast majority of AMC’s will select the appraiser from a large list based not necessarily on the quality of work, but on the lowest fee, and the fastest delivery date. The reality of this transaction environment is you often get what you pay for, which may mean a less qualified appraiser reducing the amount of work put into your appraisal due to the reduced fee. The result can be an inferior appraisal product, with reduced accuracy, increased risk to you and possible financial losses. This is not how the valuation of your home should be approached. If you are concerned about your appraisal, we can help you contest the results by reviewing the appraisal for factual errors, poor choice of comparable properties, and lack of support of the value conclusion. We can also provide you with a new appraisal prepared by a highly qualified appraiser.


Home Improvement Appraisal:  This appraisal will provide an “as completed” value. Unlike “as-is” appraisals where the home’s existing features are used to determine the value, “as-completed” appraisals are valued as if the new features being planned in the renovation already exist in that home. The appraiser will rely on your renovation plans to evaluate the value of your home in its future state. If you have completed improvements or are trying to decide if you want to make improvements to your home, we can help.


Other Appraisals:  We can help you with your divorce settlement, inheritance, tax appeal, estate or any other appraisal need you may have.


Home Measurement:  One of the main elements used when pricing a home is square footage. If the square footage is incorrect, it can have a significant effect on the value. See our Home Measurement Services page for more details.


Consulting:  If you are not ready for a full appraisal or need some insight about a property from an appraiser’s perspective, then consulting may be for you.  Email Steve at [email protected] for rates and information.  With over two decades of experience there are many ways we can help.

I had a great experience with SDI appraisals! Steve was very personable and he took the time to answer all of my questions. I appreciate how quick he was able to produce a report for me. I’ll be sure to use him again!
Stephen Ihrig has been honest, diligent, communicative, and detailed in his work for me. He went above and beyond communicating with me about his services while I am in the final stages of my divorce, when the majority of our marital assets are the real estate he appraised for me. I can’t wait to have him be my expert witness for my day in Florida court. Well earned reasonable fee. 100% confidence in SDI and Stephen. I have high standards for quality and I highly recommend!!
Steve is an awesome appraiser! He is very knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to help with all my appraisal related questions when needed.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Stephen and SDI Appraisal and I must say I was thoroughly impressed by their professionalism and expertise. From the moment I first made contact, I felt reassured that I was in good hands. Stephen was punctual, respectful, and showed an incredible depth of knowledge about the housing market and appraisal process. He took the time to explain the entire procedure in detail, ensuring we were well-informed and comfortable every step of the way. The appraisal report itself was delivered promptly and was comprehensive, yet easy to understand. It provided valuable insights into my property's value and how it compares to others in my neighborhood. I was also impressed by the inclusion of clear, high-quality photos and detailed explanations for each valuation point. This experience has made me appreciate the value of a skilled, professional appraiser. I highly recommend Stephen and SDI Appraisal to anyone in need of a thorough and accurate home appraisal.

Steve was extremely informative and professional. He did some background research without charge and recomnended that I seek someone more local based on tge purpose for my appraisal and was kind enough to provide 3 additional referrals. Couldn’t have asked for anything more from a cold call. Thanks again for all your help Steve!

Steve completed an appraisal for a home equity line of credit we were seeking. I soon discovered he is a very dedicated professional; thorough, extremely knowledgable, and his analytical mind is impressive. I own a real estate brokerage, and rarely do I find an appraiser that has such a command of the nuances of my market - Steve certainly did. Thank you!

I would highly recommend! I called Steve for questions about a land encroachment issue hoping he could provide some direction. He spent an hour on the phone with me, then sent me a detailed email leading me to other people and resources. All his time, FREE. Please use his company!! He is very helpful and honest!
