1. Not stuck at a desk all day, every day
Real estate appraisers spend a good amount of their work week at properties performing the inspections.
2. Great potential income
Appraisers can make up to six figures annually in some areas of the United States once they have the needed job history and home appraisal education.*
3. Flexible hours
Like a career in real estate, home appraisers don’t have to keep a strict 9-5 schedule. This can be beneficial for parents as it offers added flexibility.
4. Steady industry
Working in the field of real estate appraisal is more stable than working in real estate. Why? Real estate agents only get paid if a property sells. Home appraisals must take place for mortgage lending, tax purposes, real estate transactions like short-sells and foreclosures, leasing needs and even government acquisition purposes.
A real estate appraiser’s pay is not contingent on a sale. Appraisers get paid regardless of a sale because appraisals must be made for sales to happen.
5. You can get your education on your terms
With our mobile-ready, online appraisal courses, YOU pick when you study. Courses are available 24/7, and YOU set the pace that works for you. Our appraisal license courses are compatible on your PC, tablet or mobile. No classroom time is required!
Real estate appraisers have careers that are flexible, family-friendly, and stable with significant earning potential.
