  • Inspect properties
  • Prepare reports
  • Create comparison 
  • Develop conclusions of the value of properties. 

Your earning will depend on your appraisal License level. According to, Certified Residential Appraisers’ median income is $57,225 and Certified General Appraisers’ median income is $95,774 in 2017. 

Tuition depends on the type of license you get. The more training hours needed, the higher the cost. The total cost for assistant and residential is around $2000 for certified and general your looking around $3500 - $4500 with textbooks.
