The January, 2007 edition of the official bulletin of our local association of Realtors listed the names of forty-two (42) persons who dropped their memberships this month. This was not a surprise.

How many were appraiser members?

Doug and Workbox:

I did not recognize any of the names as being appraiser members. However, that does not tell us much.
I have been told that over the years, a lot of the appraisers who had been real estate brokers let their real estate license expire and just pay some sort of a fee for MLS access. So, it seems some may have quit paying the fee, but were not listed as dropped members, as they were not members.

The notice did not say whether it was for 2007 or 2008. All I know is that they were recently dropped. Wish I had a better handle on it. It's hard to get accurate bad news from Realtors. I am satisfied a lot of agents have been shut out. Our market was on fire, but not now.
