1. Not stuck at a desk all day, every day
Appraisers spend a good amount of their work week at properties performing the inspections.
2. Great potential income
Appraisers can make up to six figures annually in some areas of the United States once they have the needed job history and education.*
3. Flexible hours
Like a career in real estate, appraisers don't have to keep a strict 9-5 schedule. This can be beneficial for parents as it offers added flexibility.
4. Steady industry
Working in the field of appraisal is more stable than working in real estate. Why? Real estate agents only get paid if a property sells. Appraisals must take place for mortgage lending, tax purposes, real estate transactions like short-sells and foreclosures, leasing needs and even government acquisition purposes.
An appraiser's pay is not contingent on a sale. Appraisers get paid regardless of a sale because appraisals must be made for sales to happen.
