HandshakeValuePros, a National Leader in Appraisal and Valuation services, is one of NICA’s Associate Members. We are very excited to share the news with you about the opportunities they are offering to our members! In anticipation of a national rollout of their appraisal app (free download on Apple App store and Google Play store), ValuePros is aggressively growing into new markets for their onsite appraisal service.

The ValuePros appraisal app will enable someone to capture an item’s description and images virtually anywhere, anytime, while out shopping, at a friend’s house, in a resale store – anywhere. However, there will always remain a need for an onsite examination by a trained examination professional (inventory professional) or appraiser, for ValuePros to generate an independent USPAP compliant report.

ValuePros is looking to align with NICA members, as independent contractors, to perform onsite examinations. They have recently added examination contractors in Milwaukee, Houston, and Las Vegas. These Inventory Professionals now provide Appraisal Services, as they serve the one critical role in the appraisal procedure – Examination:

Appraisal Procedure

  1. Examination
  2. Item Identification
  3. Market Comparable Research
  4. Report Production

As we tell inquiring clients often, “the appraiser does not need to see an item with our own eyes to identify, appraise, and produce a qualified appraisal report.” You, the Inventory Professional, examine; ValuePros appraise – together providing an appraisal service in your market.

As Ray Nugent, owner of ValuePros, says, “Let’s get to work together!” Achieving your Certified Appraisal Examiner designation will help you obtain general knowledge of the appraisal industry. Contact Ray today to receive summary information on this opportunity. ValuePros prefers to use an exclusive examiner in each market. CONTACT: Ray Nugent, ValuePros @ (888) 353-7152.
