 The science of willpower and self-control confirms that your willpower – or energy levels – are strongest immediately following sleep. The longer you go throughout your day, the less willpower you have. In other words, you experience decision fatigue throughout your day. (That explains my afternoon visits to the Buckaroo!)

Appraisers are taking longer to complete appraisals and they are costing more! Why is this happening? There are fewer and fewer appraisers that are licensed to do them, so they are overworked and charging more. For years their workload has gone up while the price has remained stagnant, so now the prices are playing catch up! It is extremely difficult and inconvenient to train a new appraiser, and many licensed appraisers do not have the resources to do so! Keep this in mind when thinking about appraisals. Warn your clients that they will cost on average 600-800 dollars!
