What Is Involved In Real Estate Appraising?
Category - Professional Development - Become a Real Estate Agent

The field of real estate appraising requires advanced credential designation and, in most states, appraisers must be licensed. Most real estate appraisers offer their services to lenders and taxing authorities. 


The job of the real estate appraiser is to gather and evaluate all available facts affecting a property’s value and render and “opinion of value.”  Appraisal is a real estate career opportunity that does not require property selling, while demanding a special set of skills of its own.  Many agents obtain their real estate appraiser certification to supplement their real estate sales agent license. 


The job incorporates office and fieldwork and the income of a qualified real estate appraiser can match that of a top real estate sales agent.  Appraisers may be independent or salaried and work for lenders or tax authorities.
