Real Estate Appraiser Job Overview

A real estate appraiser provides an objective valuation of real property (appraisal) to assist those who own, rent, sell, manage, lend, or invest in commercial real estate or residential real estate properties. Appraisers utilize public record and assessor information and on-site property visits to determine the current property value for real property sale and purchase, as well as income potential of proposed real estate property investments. Appraisers may work as employees in government agencies, staff at financial institutions, or independent contractors who work solely on commission.
