This is a must for those wanting to stay in appraisal business. Too often the measurements are erroneous and confusion, Had a home measured and way smaller. I gave the lender a previous measurements by licensed surveyors. This appraiser took three measurements and each time it came out smaller than previous time.
Also some measurements are obviously wrong. Roses and shrubs are in the way. The appraiser failed to get true measurement.
The laser is not bright to make exterior measurements and most still rely on tape measurement often forget to add two measurements correctly.
