Real Estate Appraisal

Real Estate Appraisal 2018-06-19T13:52:18+00:00

Real Estate is an important foundation for most of the world’s strongest economies.

It propels businesses, drives international investment and trade; and influences decision-makers around the globe. Appraisers are an important contributor to the real estate industry because they estimate the value of all kinds of property from homes to large office buildings and beyond. The number of appraisers is declining and there is not a big group of newcomers following in their footsteps. That spells opportunity for job-seekers of the future.



Appraisal services are in demand.
The industry is on the upswing. There are independent fee appraiser jobs as well as positions with large companies and government agencies to consider. Appraisal review is a growing field within financial institutions, as well.
You may be able to enjoy flexibility in your workday.
Today you’re in the office or work from home. Tomorrow you’re in the field inspecting properties or meeting with clients. Much of what you do is independent work; so you can often set your own schedule.
You can choose from a variety of work environments.
Many appraisers are self-employed or own small businesses. A growing number work for large appraisal firms, real estate development consultancies or government agencies. A growing number are going global.
Appraisers have solid earning potential.
Most everywhere you work there is good earning potential. In 2017 the median salary among commercial appraisers was more than $70,000. Some people combine appraisal with related work to further bolster their incomes.
The work is challenging in a really good way.
Appraisers help solve complicated real property problems and their input can make a difference in financial outcomes. They offer expert testimony to help settle disputes and can assist in the valuation of complex properties.

The Appraisal Institute is a global professional association of real estate appraisers, with more than 18,000 professionals in nearly 50 countries throughout the world. Its mission is to advance professionalism and ethics, global standards, methodologies, and practices through the professional development of property economics worldwide.
