It’s here! Our second print edition of the Appraisal Buzz magazine is now available. Our goal has always been to provide real estate appraisers with valuable industry information through our free e-Newsletter and now we continue that effort with our free print magazine. We received such a great and positive response from the release of our first print edition last spring; we hope you will find this version every bit as informative and interesting.
In this edition of the magazine we provide a few tidbits on new technology to help you when appraising in the field and some leading financial industry books to help get a summer reading list together. Here is a sneak peak at some of the articles in this spring’s edition.
