Job Description for Real Estate Appraiser
Real estate appraisers are responsible for assessing the value of a property. Most real estate appraisers are contracted by an individual or a business (via an appraisal company) to perform a series of routine checks that will go on record to establish a property's worth. Appraisers' duties vary based on type of property and specific circumstance. For example, assessing the value of a commercial building may take substantially longer than an assessment of a single home. However, appraisers working on personal homes typically deal with multiple jobs at a time.
