The first thing on your mind when you need an appraiser is affordability. The second, reliability. Ideally, when you work with a Utah appraiser, you’ll have both without sacrifices. There are several things you can keep in mind while on your search to ensure you get the best of both worlds. Training All legitimate appraisers have to be properly trained. Currently licensed appraisers will have been apprenticed and gained over 75 hours of education before going out on their own. This is standard practice. Some states will have additional requirements such as a full exam before “graduating.” Even the various types of appraisals will have further specialized certification or training, and while each appraiser will have apprenticed with separate entities, they have all followed the same basic training to get there. Skills Many appraisers have skill sets beyond their appraisal training that coincide with their job. For example, a newer trend has appraisers and real estate agents being one in the same. Both trades work closely together and often overlap, so the combination of the two is somewhat natural. Even such skills as programming or those involving new technology are a plus and highly sought after. Quality Assurance Though training and expertise are great things to check when looking for an appraiser, the real quality assurance comes from reviews from real clients. Reviews are an upfront way to get a better feel for a company or individual based on interactions, communication, and going above and beyond duty. Make sure to read a variety of reviews – good and bad – to get a complete picture. And when it comes down to it, trust your gut!
