Hi Don,

Welcome to the forum!

Be sure to read through the "Newbie/AppraiserWannabe" forum as there is tons of info for new appraisers there.

Good luck!

Good luck. Truly, check out all the links, and do a search for "mentors". You'll find that it's really going to be hard to get one in this market. One major lender told me that half of the appraisers on her list from last year are no longer in business.

Honestly, I suggest hiring some "undocumented workers" and starting a landscaping business, focusing on upkeep of foreclosed properties. I'm not being "smart". There's a millionaire here that started just that way. Has a fleet of trucks.

Hello Don and welcome to the forum. Are you taking your courses online or in a classroom? In my opinion I would recommend a classroom setting and also look into taking classes through the Appraisal Institute, but thats just my 2 cents. Also an attachment for your reading pleasure. Good luck

I got married in Calistoga and just mentioned to my wife the other day... "I wonder if there's any work out there"? I envy your location and hope you need a staff reviewer soon!
