A property appraiser estimates the value of a property for tax, sales, financing, development and insurance purposes. They help to establish the value of a property through examination and research.
The main job duty of a property appraiser is to create a detailed report about the property that specifies the property's value and the reasons why that value was given. The appraisal process involves looking over the property and gathering specific information that will affect the value, such as special architectural features, environmental factors and the condition of the structure. During the course of completing the appraisal a property appraiser also takes photographs and researches information using the latest technology.
