Accordng to the 7/5/2008 update (DBPR database) the FL appraisal licensee numbers are as follows:

RD=5786
RI=6727 (2956 Inactive = 44%)
RH=68
RZ=2218

Trends are as follows:

Incoming RDs for 2007 = 870, 2008 = 116 (6 months).

Incoming RIs for 2007 = 1435, 2008 = 208 (6 months).

Incoming RDs for 2007 averaged 73 per month; the monthly number peaked in Oct. through Dec. (92, 75, 99). Although the numbers fell significantly starting 1/2008 it is rising again. First 6 months of '08 are 8,1,13,29,25,40. My guess is that number will continue to increase through 12/31/08.

Data indicates RIs generally enter field as Inactive; for those entering after 1/1/2008 the Inactive rate is 68%. That figure is 60% for RIs who entered after 1/1/2007. The Inactive rate for all RIs is 44%.

For appraisers who see a possible shortage of RDs, don't forget there is still a huge pool of Inactive RIs to fill the void created by any shortage. I don't have hard data but it seems to me the Inactive rate for RIs (overall) has fallen. So...who knows what that is about - getting active and earning experience credit at whatever cost (to get in under the wire) is one possibility. Another possibility is that Certifieds are simply using more RIs.

I process the database with Excel. If anyone sees any data they disagree with holler at me.

It'll be interesting to see what those numbers are in December after the renewal cycle.

My home county has some interesting numbers:

52 active trainees, 61 inactive

66 Cert Res (did not check inactive)

2 Licensed

27 Cert General

147 total active in the county.

Most of the active trainees work for one of the three big local sweat shops. The co-owner of one of the sweat shops is currently under suspension for failing to properly supervise trainees. Imagine that.

It will be interesting to see how many of the inactive trainees do not renew in November. My guess is most of them will not.

As the residential volume has slowed it appears that many of the trainees have been given their walking papers. I'm guessing the number of inactives will continue to rise given the current climate.
