My industry changed in a huge way two years ago. Many real estate appraisers are actually no longer in business because they were basically sideswiped when something called the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) came along.
I get asked quite a bit about HVCC and how I feel about it, so I wanted to offer my two cents. This is probably not what you were expecting to hear, but HVCC has actually been a catalyst to take my business to the next level. Look, I’m not an HVCC groupie by any means, but rather than focus on the problems created for the appraisal industry due to HVCC, I have worked hard to expand niche areas of business instead. It’s in my DNA to find solutions – whether with business or community involvement. Watch the video below to hear my story.
Has your industry experienced changes in recent years? How did you respond to these changes? Why do you think some of us see opportunities during hardships while others only see threats? Is the glass half full or half empty for you?
