It is very important that you guarantee that the appraiser you will pick is someone who is licensed in the state wherein the appraisal or appraisals are taking place.
Another important thing that you should do is to ask the appraiser himself about his personal background, most especially when it comes to their work. Moreover, you have to ask the appraiser if the license they carry still active or already expired or if it is suspended or not and also, you should ask if they are placed in probation or not since asking all these questions will greatly help you know if they can be trusted and if they are still legally doing their business.
