I'd like to know if I should wait until I pass my National exam to start looking for an appraisal position. I guess my concern is that, I don't want to wreck any chances that I may have with a possible oppotunity. I currently have the education certification and have passed the state exam. :?:

You've lost me. How much appraisal experience do you have? How many appraisals have you signed as the appraiser?

THanks for the reply Pamela. I'm just getting started in the field. I've been in the cable and phone business for 20 years. Been in over 50,000 residences and commercial building. Also alot of new construction sites. I do feel that I can get a good start in this appraisal field. At least I hope so. Does this help answer the experience question?

Your answers help. Check out your state laws/regulations regarding experience hours and appraisal log that will likely be necessary prior to applying to take the certification exam. Good luck!

Again, thanks for another fast response Pamela. I have not done any apppraisal reports with my signature. Like I said, I don't want to jump the gun and put my name out there until I'm worth something. The funny thing is, just by stating this,its already out there. The great thing is that I have alot of belief in this venture.

Start looking right away for an HONEST, ETHICAL supervisor to train you. Be careful of who you choose. There are not many good ones willing to take on a trainee as it cost so much in both time and money to train someone properly.

READ everything regarding appraisal that you can find. Stay on this forum and read everything.

Good luck!
