Why must I pay an appraisal fee? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-have-a-Pre-approved-VA-loan-Why-must-I-pay-an-appraisal-fee/253453/ My <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">loan</a> officer called and said that I need to bring a check for $500 to have an appraisal done. She said that her bank would subtract this amount from any closing costs due at closing day. I am confused because she listed the $500 appraisal fee as a closing cost on the GFE, and under the VA, closing costs are not required to be paid.<br \><br \>2 replies Tue, 07 Jul 2009 01:01:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-have-a-Pre-approved-VA-loan-Why-must-I-pay-an-appraisal-fee/253453/ 2009-07-07T01:01:00Z
