I am thinking about partnering up with an attorney, accountant, insurance broker(s), and perhaps a banker, and offering a paid webinar/online course or course(s), that provides some models of how to structure a small/micro appraisal practice, set a pricing model, and perhaps how to plan for retirement.

Can you provide some feedback on if this would be useful and what information would be useful to see in the poll below. Thanks!

It would be nice if this type course qualified for CE credit, perhaps it could if it were bundled with another topic, maybe appraiser liability.
At the end of the day or career, knowledge of retirement planning is far more important than the endless USPAP courses we've all been forced to suffer through.

I think it would be difficult to qualify for CE if it was business related rather than appraisal development or reporting related. The liability info is a good idea thanks!

I think you may have a market for this as IMO most appraisers are not or have not been been businesspersons. Spoiler alert.

S Corp for taxation
Properties go into individual LLCs which go into a Family LLC-avoiding liability

Insure what you can't afford to lose and makes Family LLC more credible as more than a liability shield.

Employees (ever)? SEP-IRA
Never employees? Solo 401K

No need to overcomplicate things for a one man band or a trio. Get the money in the door and protect it as outlined above. Go about your life doing what you enjoy. :peace:

One item I did not really see is marketing oneself, obtaining clients, and/or finding a niche. That will become more and more important as waivers/hybrids/AVMs take more and more pieces of the pie...
