Overview: Real estate appraisers appraise real estate properties to determine its value and potentially its taxability. They may look at new buildings or additions/changes to buildings and properties to determine the value.
Geographers at Work: Geographers make great real estate appraisers because in order to tell the value of a property or its taxability they need to use methods such as field inspection and observing trends for an area. They must prepare and keep geographical data on each property they assess, such as maps of property boundaries and property characteristics.
