Considering a Career in Real Estate? Real estate is a major and pivotal facet of our economy. Whenever real estate is sold, mortgaged, taxed, insured, or developed, an appraisal is an essential component of any transaction. Without a knowledgeable and trustworthy appraisal, a real estate transaction will fall apart at the seams. Real estate appraisers are problem solvers. Just like putting together a puzzle, they arrange hundreds of facts, statistics, market data, and property characteristics to show their clients and other related parties, such as banks and mortgage companies, what the picture looks like.

Real estate appraisal is a unique career choice that can fit into anyones lifestyle, pace, and expectations. One can let his or her location and market dictate the types of real estate property to appraise, such as single-family homes, commercial properties, shopping malls and farms, or one can explore the country and accept specialized appraisal assignments in different states, or even countries.

With thousands of properties exchanging hands each year, the opportunities for growth and diversity are endless. Everyone from Wall Street financiers to the neighbor next door needs to know the value of their property, ensuring that the appraisal industry is always open for business.
