Have you thought about entering the multi-billion dollar real estate agency? Every day, houses, condos, apartments and land are being bought, rented or sold. Even if becoming a realtor doesn’t appeal to you, there are other ways to cash in.
Knowing the value of a property is an important part of a fair transaction. As a real estate appraiser, you would be a crucial component to preventing property for being sold for too little or bought for too much. You would be responsible for estimating the value compared to what else is in and around the area.
Of course you will need to become licensed or certified. (Each state has its own criteria, so be sure the check that out before moving forward.) For a starting point, check out sources like Allied Real Estate Schools or Kaplan Real Estate Education.
While the process may differ from state to state, in general, you will need to obtain about 75 hours of qualifying education. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get started!
