While my title is somewhat sarcastic I truely only want to hear from those appraisers that are finding business in this wacky economy. I have read sad and irate comments from appraisers on various forums and while it is sometimes nice to co-miserate with others I don't find it very productive. I am really wanting to pick the brains of those appraisers that are successful and busy. I have a family to feed and if I can learn something from someone that can help me be a busier and more successful appraiser I would be very happy. Specifically I would like to know where they are getting their business and how they got it. I hope this helps others as well. Sometimes we get in a rut with the things we are doing (and how we are doing them) and need fresh ideas from other successful people in our business. Thanks in advance for any and all comments.
