Hello-

I have been using this forum as a great learning resource, particularly since I haven't found a mentor yet. So here is my question since I don't have a mentor to ask:

How do I get information about subscribing to Redlink?

I've tried looking on internet, can't find a website. I tried searching this site, nothing. Do I have the name wrong?

Please help, I'm trying to educate myself as much as possible until I find someone to guide me. If it helps, I'm located in Atlanta.

Thanks!

"Access to tax information, property history and appraisals submitted by members of the Appraisal Institute"

That is what it states on a unrelated web site. I can't say for certain that it has anything to do with AI, but I know it is a data source compiled by appraisers.

It's suppose to be a big source around here, my instructors at Barney Fletcher school in Atlanta talked about it. I already emailed one of my instructors about something else with no reply, so I didn't want to send another (I finished the course a couple of weeks ago).

Thank you for your assistance!

Julie,
Redlink is not just from appraisers. It is also tax records for most of the counties, as well as deed transfers on file. Don't buy it at this time. Find yourself a mentor, because Redlink, although a lot of information is available, is not cheap.
If I had to buy it, I'd be crying every time I sent the bill in. Find a mentor, then see if they will provide you access to it. Redlink is, as I said, very costly.

I would suggest that an inexperienced appraiser learn how to research properties the old fashioned way, by going to the court house and sorting through the records. You will be suprised at how much you will learn about your market area. You will also learn about the weak points in on line info services, these services can be a time saver but you must understand their limitations.

Julie,

There are a multitude of services available for research few are free. Most states now have a Cadastral/CAMA site where anyone can look up parcel info for free. Check it out.

Julie,

With your resume, why do you want to get in this business?

Hello again,
I just wanted to thank you all for your advice, it was a big help!


Julie,

TC - There are many reasons why I want to get into this business. For one I am tired of the corporate world and sitting at a desk from 8-5. I know every field has its own set of 'challenges', but this one is the most appealing to me and matches my skill set and maintains my independence and flexibility. I plan on forging a long-term beneficial/profitable relationship with a mentor, not just ‘hit n’ run’. Thanks for asking!
