Question on Appraisal Training

Not open for further replies.

Hello all,
I've got a question on working for someone else as you get your 2000 hours in Georgia. What is the norm for pay? Do they give you a percentage of each appraisal or some flat amount? I am trying to determine whether or not I'll be able to earn enough after my maternity leave to quit my job or if I'll need to keep working part time.

I'm asking a little early as I don't begin appraisal classes till next month, and won't finish till May. However, I've got to start deciding what I'm going to do after baby is here.

Also, if anyone jumped into it alone without working under someone else first, how'd it go, would you do it again?

Thanks so much for your help!


In the beginning, your focus should not be on when and where to take classes, but who and what appraiser company am I gonna be employed by. The hardest part is finding an appraiser who will train you for your 2000 hours and pay you decent. Typically, once you can do your own appraisals, in many cases you split the fee with the supervising appraiser. Classes are the easy part, finding a good trainer is not.
