  1. All that is fine, just pay the appraiser reasonable and customary fees if an AMC wants to make money for managing appraisal orders they can charge a separate fee for that. I am also a Realtor and my buyers pay between $450-$550 for an appraisal up front, on the other hand I have AMCs offering $280-$300 the most for an appraisal and if the appraiser increases his/her fee the orders stop coming and that’s the reality.
