Appraiser Trainee Blog

Appraiser Trainee Blog is a place where mentors/sponsors (and trainees) can exchange information on what is working for them and what isn’t, as well as a “services offered/services needed” section where trainees and mentors can find each other. A few appraisers complain of not being able to find trainees! Hopefully this will help some of you achieve your goals. If it’s like our earlier efforts, such as the Working RE/OREP HVCC TalkBack Blog, regulators and others from state and federal government- those who can make things happen, will be checking in in addition to tens of thousands of appraisers. If you want your ideas to be taken seriously, please make the comments constructive and cogent (please use spell check!). That’s not bad advice if you’re trying to put your best foot forward as a trainee either.

If you’d like to post a specific opportunity or need, please post a comment to our thread: Mentorships Wanted / Offered

    I have tried to hire a trainee 3 times. All three were college students. After getting a taste of what I have to do and the and the length of time they would have to train plus complete college they decided it wasn’t for them. I am getting up in age and will soon retire. I wanted to turn my business over to someone that I felt would take care of my customers. Doesn’t look like that is going to happen.

      In our business we have found it is easier to hire family, is there a chance of that?

    I may also consider hiring trainees in the future (again), but right now I cannot.
