Part Time Residential Appraiser
I currently work 14 days per month, 12 hour shifts. So, I have more time off than a regular M-F job. Can I get my license and work part time until I get the experience to support my family doing it full time?
Hi, Matt – thank you so much for your question! The real estate appraiser licensing process varies by state so the time commitment is also state-specific. However, most states allow aspiring appraisers to take either in-person or online training courses before gaining work experience under the supervision of a licensed real property appraiser. This means you can schedule coursework in a way that works with your unique schedule.
Once you’re ready to earn the required pre-licensing experience as a trainee appraiser, find a licensed mentor who is willing to work with your existing schedule.
