Real Estate Assessor Career
Real estate assessors place a value on a property and any buildings on the property for tax purposes. This is different from the job of a real estate appraiser who places a value on a property and any buildings on the property before the property is sold.
Assessors place a value on all the homes at once in an entire neighborhood. They use computerized appraisal systems that help them keep track of all the homes within their jurisdiction, and this system provides the assessment history of these homes.
