Home Appraisals: An introduction

AppraisalThere are so many questions 
about appraisals, and I 
thought I would try to answer 
a few of them here for you. 
I will try to add few posts 
a week and if you have any 
questions of your own about 
appraisals, please feel free to 
email me at

I think one thing that is 
really important for people to understand is that to become appraiser
you need a four year degree in really anything and the two years 
of apprenticeship under a licensed appraiser.  This is a hard 
situation as a lot of appraisers are at retirement age and there
are not enough new ones coming into the profession.  This is a 
major problem in the real estate industry as it is causing 
loans to not close on time and to be pushed way out.
