Forecasting Your Appraisal Business

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Memorize this statement:  "Cash flow is the lifeblood of all businesses. Without cash flow your business will die."

I stress this statement often when I talk to appraisers during conferences, meetings, and webinars. Why?  Because you are a small business owner first… and an appraiser second! Appraisers do a remarkable job and take great pride in their appraisal work. I recommend that you also take this attitude and approach towards your appraisal business, particularly your cash flow.

USP stands for Unique Selling Proposition. It's the single most important element of your business.
