A Real Estate Appraiser provides objective and unbiased opinions about the
value of real property—providing assistance to those who own, manage,
sell, invest in, and/or lend money on the security of real estate. Appraisers
assemble a series of facts, statistics, and other information regarding specific
properties, analyze this data, and develop opinions of value. Most appraisers
are self-employed, business owners.
