The Texas Appraiser Licensing & Certification Board has engaged the Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston and the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University to conduct a survey to learn more about the practices of appraisers and appraisal management companies (AMCs) that operate in the state of Texas, including on the topic of fees charged and paid for common appraisal reports.  We invite you to participate.

This survey, conducted every two years, asks questions about appraisers’ level of experience in the field, the types of appraisals conducted, fees charged by appraisers, and factors that affect these fees. It also asks AMCs about how they select appraisers, fees typically paid to appraisers, and factors that affect how these fees are determined. The survey should take about 5 minutes to complete.

Your participation is completely voluntary and all survey responses will be confidential. When answering the questions, please reply based on your experience in 2016. You may skip any question you do not want to answer and discontinue your participation at any time without penalty. If you have any questions about this survey, please email Ching-Hsing Wang.
