Appraisers and assessors of real estate provide a value estimate on land and buildings.
Most appraisers and assessors must be licensed or certified, but requirements vary widely. To obtain a certification, appraisers of residential or commercial property usually need to have at least a bachelor's degree. For assessors, most states set education and experience requirements that they must meet in order to practice.
Employment of appraisers and assessors of real estate is projected to grow 3 percent from 2019 to 2029, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Demand for appraisal services is linked to the real estate market, which can fluctuate in the short term.
Although appraisers and assessors of real estate work in offices, they often spend a large part of their day visiting properties. Most work full time during regular business hours.
