You have to make sure that the appraiser you will choose is licensed in the state where the appraisal or appraisals are taking place.
There are other things that you should do as well such as asking the appraiser about his background, particularly with the appraising job they have. Moreover, you have to ask the appraiser if the license they carry still active or already expired or if it is suspended or not and also, you should ask if they are placed in probation or not since asking all these questions will greatly help you know if they can be trusted and if they are still legally doing their business.
Apart from the things that was mentioned earlier on in this article, we want you to know as well if the appraisal reports are done by the licensed appraiser or if they leave it in the hands of staff members who only do data entry and is oblivious of how appraisals are done. If they do not and are the one taking care of the appraisal report then well and good but if they don’t, better look for another one.
