It’s time for appraisers to change

Gautama Buddha nails our valuation space’s biggest challenge…

“There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth…not going all the way and not starting.”

Successful fee and bank appraisers put client expectations as their north star for all their investment in technology and processes.

Overcoming First Hurdle: Not Starting

The hesitation to adopt new technology often stems from a fear of the unknown, concerns about the cost and time investment required, or simply the comfort of familiarity with traditional methods.

However, the failure to embark on the digital transformation journey can lead to inefficiencies, inaccuracies and a diminished ability to meet client expectations promptly.

The second mistake is not going all the way. It’s not enough to merely dabble in new technologies or half-heartedly implement new processes.

To truly reap the benefits, appraisers must fully commit to integrating these advancements into their day-to-day.

Going all the way also entails a shift in mindset, from viewing technology as an optional aid to seeing it as an integral part of the appraisal process.

This shift enables appraisers to leverage the full potential of digital tools.

Yet, despite the clear imperative for innovation and adaptation, some appraisers remain hesitant to embrace change.

Those who invest in continuous learning and experimentation position themselves as leaders and innovators, capable of seizing new opportunities.

Don’t Curb Your Enthusiasm

Let’s avoid a Larry David approach, “Why do it now when I can stress about it later?”

This reluctance to transform stunts professional growth and poses significant risks in an increasingly competitive landscape.

The valuation space is ripe for transformation, driven by technological advancements, shifting market dynamics and evolving client expectations.

By fostering a culture of innovation and adaptation, appraisers can enhance their competitiveness, improve the quality of their work and position themselves for long-term success.

Danger Will Robinson

The danger of the lack of transformation in the valuation space cannot be overstated.

Appraisers who resist change risk falling behind, compromising their ability to deliver value and limiting their professional growth.

One of the primary dangers of stagnation in the valuation space is the erosion of competitiveness.

By embracing innovation and experimentation, appraisers can future-proof their careers and position themselves as leaders in the broader real estate industry.

It’s time for us to start to change.

Let’s get started.

Let’s experiment.

Let’s go all the way.
