How do these numbers compare with numbers from the previous year? I’m one of the 351 Trainees and am curious about trends in the profession.

It is surprising to me that there are so many “licensed” residential appraisers still left registered in NC. Since the lenders we work with all require certification level registration, I wonder, what kind of work these “licensed” appraisers are completing?

At present, I understand that they may be completing non-lender ore non-federal lending transaction work. IMHO, I believe it is a disservice to the public at large to continue to grandfather these individuals who for what ever reason, can not or will not become certified appraisers.

The non-lender and non-federal lender work we complete are some of the most complex of our assignments. Therefore, if these “licensed” appraisers are not considered competently educated to complete federal lender work, then why would the NC Appraisal Board continue to grandfather them?
