Why pursue this certification?

Although this certification is voluntary, earning a CLHA certification demonstrates professional expertise in appraising luxury homes thereby opening more appraisal opportunities in this special niche.

Real estate appraisal is a profession that requires resolve and commitment as outside forces attempt to reduce the importance of a valuation performed by an expert.

Despite these challenges, you can remain passionate about the appraisal profession by providing valuation services for complicated real estate properties such as luxury homes.  A credible luxury home valuation cannot be accomplished by a non-appraiser, through a hybrid valuation product, or by an inexperienced appraiser with an unrealistic turn time and fees.
