An appraisal company without appraisers....pretty smart, if you don't
have a license with OREA then they probably can't take away your
license. Maybe they do a modified AVM, like a modified 2055Z.

Unfortunately, you don't need to be licensed as an appraiser to own an appraisal company. Just another AMC in training, but a quote from the website speaks volumes.

"We view our position as newcomers to the appraisal industry as an opportunity to revolutionize the appraisal process."

This would be a violation of board rules in NC.


(c) An appraiser who wishes to supervise a trainee must attend an education program offered by the Appraisal Board regarding the role of a supervisor either before such supervision begins, or within 90 days after such supervision begins. If the supervisor does not take the class within 90 days after the supervision begins, the trainee may no longer work under the supervision of that supervisor until the class is taken, and the supervisor must take the course before he can begin supervising a trainee.
(d) Trainees must assure that the supervisor has properly completed and sent the Supervisor Declaration Form to the Appraisal Board on or before the day the trainee begins assisting the supervising appraiser. Trainees shall not receive appraisal experience credit for appraisals performed in violation of this Section.


(e) Supervising appraisers shall not be employed by a trainee or by a company, firm or partnership in which the trainee has a controlling interest.

Yeah, right. How about a certified currently under a three year suspension, but has a certified with three trainees under that certified working in his office. No doubt he sits in that office all day writing up reports that his 'crew' inspected. The question is, how do you prove he's doing it? There's no law that says an unlicensed or uncertified appraiser can't 'own' an appraisal office.

And so it goes.

NOT illegal in SC

Anyone can own an appraisal firm in SC. Trainee, non trainee, professional skateboarder, whatever.

The laws here govern who can perform an appraisal, and that is limited only to licensed appraisers and their trainees.

We have a similar class for supervisors and thier trainees, but all you need to employ an appraiser is the B$Alls to open a company.

But the owner can in no way perform an inspection or an appraisal.

I personally have no problem with the legality of it, just the practicality of it.

I don't think the terms opportunist and appraiser should ever be commingled.

What in the hell is a "real estate opportunist" anyways?
