Reporters, the media, it is hard to have respect for them anymore. In 2007 there were more appraisers than ever before. How about compare the number of appraisers now to 2000?

As to the sudden aging of the appraisal participants, this is nothing new. It has always been said that the average age of appraisers is high compared to other professionals.

I can cite statistics that support my point of view as long as I use the stats that support my view.

Appraising is the fountain of youth.

For the past 15 years the median age of appraisers has been 55.

If we could bottle and sell it, we could make a fortune.
