At Thanksgiving dinner, my nephew said he wants to go into the family business. He asked me to recommend some schools for him. I figured it might also be helpful for anyone else out there curious about becoming a real estate appraisal professional.
So, here are some resources for you if you want to know more about the real estate appraisal business:
Department of State, Division of Licenses has a great page that talks about licensing state to state and where some appropriate courses are offered. Click here to see more.
Here are some schools that offer appraisal accreditation:
- Appraisal Institute.
- Allied Real Estate Schools also known as Real Estate Appraisal Schools.
- Hofstra University.
- Real Estate Education Center.
As for books on the subject, there are quite a few that you can read to gain some in-depth knowledge.
- The Student Handbook To The Appraisal of Real Estate.
- Real Estate Finance & Investments (Real Estate Finance and Investments).
Also, according to Wikihow:
“All individuals seeking to become a Certified Residential Appraiser must successfully complete a minimum of 200 AQB approved hours of education, obtain 2,500 experience hours and pass an examination administered by the jurisdiction awarding the credential. Note: Some states do not accept distance education for qualifying education credit.”
So, if you’re like Mike, the nephew, then use this time to research the field and decide if it’s right for you.Tags: appraisal career, appraisal questions, appraisal sale, appraisal zoning, buy a home, colorado property, does your appraiser, florida home appraisal, house pool value, New York Real Estate Appraisal, real estate, real estate appraisal schools, real estate career, what is an appraisal, what is appraisal
