Appraisers, if you would like to learn from highly qualified peers (other than me! :), post questions, or offer your own comments, consider joining the FREE group, National Appraisers Forum (NAF). Use this link.
This group used to be one of the Yahoo groups, but Yahoo is shutting down groups, so National Appraisers Forum has moved to ‘groups.io’ as its home base.
If you are not already a ‘participant’ of NAF, the sign-up is easy. If you are already a ‘participant’, you can use your login info to get on their database list of participants. Current participants should not post to the Yahoo group anymore.
This is one of the best appraiser groups as all commentary is respectful. While not everyone always agrees with certain points, the discussions are not demeaning. There is a wealth of info participants share freely on a wide number of topics. The group has several moderators who monitor the posting activity.
Groups.io has options available on the sign-up page for how you receive notice of posts to the NAF group. I use their digest function, which sends an email synopsis of recent posting activity.
One key point, NAF participants are not anonymous. You must use your name (at a bare minimum) when participating, which is required when signing up. Most participants also include the region or state where they are based, and designations, etc., with their name. Moderators are asking that anyone who wants to join should give their name as licensed, the state they are in, and their license number.
