Since everybody is having so much fun lately, let's put it all in perspective.
Let's rank appraisers based upon income per assignment (new construction and/or resale, whatever). Feel free to include anybody I may have forgotten.

Builders/Developers
Investors
Architects
General Contractors
Sub-Contractors
Surveyors
Lawyers
Home Inspectors
Real Estate Agents
Real Estate Brokers
Loan Officers
Title Insurance
Mortgage Broker
Primary Lender
Appraiser
Termite Guy

The above is not in any particuliar order, except for the last two, but I'm not sure, maybe the termite guy has passed us up. In any event, I'm keeping this list in mind next time somebody wants me to reduce my fee or fill out some stupid form for less than full fee.

At first when I read that, we seemed to be bottom of the pole, then thought, What would be the order be, if you ratio income made to time actually spent on site?

"I WORK FOR FOOD" crowd does better here. They average 30-40k and they dont have any taxes, car expenses or Continueing ED cost. They do have to pay for a pandeing permit.

Andrew, forgot about that; NYC has the highest income for similar folk-tax free dollars

A dollar for your thoughts.

Around here the "lot and block" survey team makes less in wages than the real estate appraiser does. A vacant land "stake" team sets their own terms, with out much dispute. However did we over look the "pool man". when considering the income to education ratios these guys are the top producers, and require a minium of equipment.

Are there any pools in the Detroit metro area? If it is like Madison a better word for them is Skating Rink.
