With over 14 years of experience as an appraiser, Christian Jackson has a passion for his career. He shared with us that when he first started, the market was facing similar challenges as today, but he had mentors who were instrumental in helping him grow. Christian believes that being an appraiser is a niche within the real estate industry, and having this expertise in today’s job market is highly valuable.
By combining his experience as an appraiser with that of a real estate agent, Christian has deepened his knowledge and understanding of the real estate market.
As the real estate market continues to evolve, it is becoming increasingly important for appraisers to adapt and remain competitive. Christian Jackson, a seasoned appraiser and real estate agent, notes that the market has changed significantly in recent months, leading many appraisal management companies to reevaluate their strategies.
To stay ahead of the curve, Christian suggests that appraisers take a close look at the services they offer to clients and think about how they can be improved. He also encourages appraisers to listen to their customers’ needs and identify non-lender opportunities to diversify their income sources and set themselves apart from the competition. With the market changing so quickly, having a well-rounded approach is key to success.
“Besides mortgage work, there are many opportunities for non-lender work as well. People get appraisals every day for all types of assignments not limited only to mortgages. So, it’s important to shift your business model in times like this.” – Christian Jackson
As a real estate agent and appraiser, Christian Jackson recognizes the value of floor plans in his line of work. He listens to different podcasts every day, and, one day, he was on his way to an extremely difficult appraisal – he had already visited it before. The first thing that came into his mind was, “a large house full of difficult angles, how can this property even be measured?”.
On his way to the property, he was listening to a podcast where CubiCasa floor plan app was referenced. CubiCasa allows you to create an accurate floor plan in just a couple of minutes only with your smartphone, without needing training and costly equipment. Christian thought the solution to his problems could be just a few clicks away. So, he downloaded the CubiCasa app, opened YouTube, and sat in the driveway for about 20 minutes watching “how to scan” videos.
When we asked how the result turned out, Christian replied:
“The final result turned out perfect! I was able to do it in a timely manner and get it done accurately. CubiCasa really saved the day.” – Christian Jackson
Are you tired of spending hours manually measuring complex houses for traditional appraisals? Christian was too until he discovered CubiCasa. With the innovative floor plan app, Christian was able to measure larger and more intricate properties with precision in just a few minutes. No longer did he have to rely on a time-consuming laser measure. Don’t just take Christian’s word for it, try CubiCasa for yourself and experience the game-changing difference it can make in your appraisals.
“It was pretty easy, you just need to follow the instructions. I didn´t know if it was gonna work. I can tell you that my jaw dropped when I received the result. I’m convinced with CubiCasa app.” – Christian Jackson
