Starting an Independent Rural Appraisal Business

This article reports the responses from a survey of 45 independent rural appraisers in 18 states and 1 Canadian province who have started their own independent business. All were members of the American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers in 2006 and held the ARA designation. When they started their own business, the respondents ranged from 25 to 62 years of age. Most engaged in some other services along with appraising. This purpose of this report was to gain insights into starting a rural appraisal business through a survey of independent rural appraisers who had started their own appraisal business and usually did not engage in farm or ranch management.
