Keystone Careers

Looking to Join the Industry

The commercial appraisal industry focuses on providing valuation services for commercial properties, which can include office buildings, retail stores, industrial sites, and multifamily residential buildings. As a commercial appraiser, you play a crucial role in determining the value of these properties based on various factors such as location, condition, market trends, and revenue potential.

Entering the commercial appraisal industry can be a rewarding career choice if you enjoy a mix of analytical tasks, fieldwork, and continuous learning. It's a field that offers both challenges and opportunities to make a significant impact in the real estate and financial sectors.

Here's what you should know about the industry if you're considering a career in it:

Every day is different in the life of a commercial appraiser. You might spend one day visiting a new property and another day conducting in-depth market research or preparing appraisal reports. This role involves a combination of fieldwork and office-based analysis, making it a good fit for those who dislike monotonous desk jobs.

Success in this field requires strong analytical skills to assess information and make accurate valuations. You’ll also need to be adept at researching market data, zoning laws, and economic trends that influence property values.

Most regions require commercial appraisers to be licensed or certified, which typically involves completing specific education courses, gaining experience under a certified appraiser, and passing an examination. Continuous education is also a part of the profession to stay updated with changing regulations and market dynamics.

While much of the work is analytical, interpersonal skills are crucial. You’ll need to effectively communicate your findings to clients, interact with property owners, and sometimes testify as an expert in legal settings.

The industry offers significant growth potential. With experience, you can move from junior appraiser roles to senior positions, handling more complex or high-value properties. There are also opportunities for specialization in certain types of commercial properties or in consultancy roles.

Your work will have a direct impact on real estate transactions, investment decisions, and property development projects. Accurate appraisals are vital for financial institutions, investment groups, and businesses that rely on property as a key asset.
