Just found out about this site's function where you can see how many active appraisers there are in your state. Quite interesting. In Michigan, this is what I found:

965 certified general
113 certified residential
2149 licensed
3227 total
It does not appear to include the trainee licenses.

The funny thing is I thought there were so many more! Registered through our board of Realtors are approximately 150 appraisers, and this is just Ann Arbor. I would have thought due to our high number of appraisers, that there would be considerably more appraisers out there.

If you are interested in checking out your state, the url is: http://www.asc.gov/admin/appraisersu...ort.aspx?id=15

Rachel,


These numbers include ONLY those on the National Registry. This does not include anyone who chooses not to pay the fee to be on the ASC National Registry or who do not meet the requirements to do so.

For instance, the NCAB shows 3830 appraisers in NC (all catagories) while the ASC site shows only 2515. That means the ASC is showing only 66% in NC.

These are just about the same numbers I remember being given in a CE class 2 years ago. You are right, it does not seem like a lot until business slows down a little and then appraisers seem to be coming out of the woodwork.

I do remember that when the new fees and CE went into effect a few years back, the number of Valuation Specialists licenses that lapsed was tremendous. There were just too many people with that license running around calling themselves appraisers.

Hi guys, thanks for the replies.

I didn't realize that. Thanks for the information.

Yes, I've noticed this. I have been a full-time appraiser since 1989, so distinctly remember the slow-down in the mid 1990's when there were a tremendous oversupply of appraisers. Think we are back to that, but the numbers on the registry just didn't seem to be high. Guess there must be something on the state level to check how many there are (just haven't checked), probably much greater than noted above. How many do you have in the Alpena area (I take it you are up that away....)?

I did not know that paying the $25 Registry Fee was optional. I pay license fees in three states (Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota) and all require paying the Registry Fee with each rewewal. I have to pay the fee for each state I renew my license in.

Maybe other states are different?

Rachel,

You state, "I thought there were more". There are. Many unlicensed appraisers doing a brisk business in this state. Probably the largest category.

The Certified Generals seem to take the registration more seriously than others.
I would have thought there are more Certified Residential appraisers than any other group.

You also have to also account for us stealth appraisers. I am a Certified Residential Appraiser that has paid the $25 but I do not appear in the registry. I figure that they will get around to adding me someday.
