Is Property Data Collection Right for You?

Becoming a Property Data Collector is a great option if you’re ready to earn extra money, expand your skillset, or start a new career in the real estate industry.  

Unlike appraisers who have comprehensive knowledge of property standards used to determine market value, Property Data Collectors only record information. As the title suggests, they collect data related to floor plan details, structural materials, and any significant issues related to structural integrity and safety. Lenders use this data for low-risk loans when the appraisal is waived, or appraisers use it as foundational information during a “desktop appraisal.”
