Is the Appraisal Profession Dying?
By George Dell
Excerpts: Yes. Appraisal as we know it is dying.
Can it be saved? No.
So what should I do? What should “we” do?
To answer these questions, we need to look at causes and conditions. Some of these are obvious.
– Judgment is good; Analysis is better.
– Human generalization is excellent; Computation is fast…
So what can we do? If we cannot be saved. If computers are faster. If we have complete data. If we too have software. If we too can provide results instead of opinions… Leads to an obvious question: Can an experienced appraiser do these things as well as, or better than those others?
