This is Gross Appraisal Income, does not include
expenses. It is "per person" and only
includes appraisal income. And its 'pre-tax.'

[edit] Ooops--The $100,000 to $125,000 line should be $100,000 to $!50,000 ]

Past year poll results, when times were good...

2008 not such a good year for my real estate appraisal business. I made about $40,000 before expences. Other parts of my business plan are doing well so overall I am doing OK. Glad I diversified fall 2007 building guitars, going back to doing art appraisals and stopped most lending related work this Sept.

If I had held on to the misguided thought that real estate would turn the corner this spring and summer I would be in trouble.

Appraisal income has stayed pretty much the same in all 4 of those polls

Not much change here. But we don't completely rely on lender/mortgage work.

I did some simple averaging and it looks like from
2007 to 2008, average income went from $106,000 to $77,000!

Would it be a big problem if we could have 3 separate polls?

1. Trainees
2. Residential Appraisers
3. General Appraisers

I think breaking it down would be a much more informative.

Its a bit odd to call it an "income" survey and then say its before expenses...might wanna call it a "billing" survey.

Gotta love deregulation!

Holly smokes. I did some simple averaging and it looks like from 2007 to 2008, average income went from $106,000 to $34,000!!! And that's gross income. Supremo drop!! We need a bailout!!
Sounds about right on my appraisal income stream. Although it was more like 2006-to-2008. 2007 was somewhere in the middle. Thankfully I took a 9-5 job this past Oct. and sent the wife back to work after almost 10 yrs. Between her job, my job and appraisal related fees I am back to 2005 appraisal income level. Gotta love deregulation!:clapping:
