Wednesday, December 7, 2022 | The Latest Buzz for the Appraisal Industry

The Brand New Buzz

During our lockdown, the Appraisal Buzz team decided to use our time wisely. We created a whole new website to better serve the needs of the appraisal community!

First, let us say thanks for two decades of loyal readership.

Our motivation was to make the Buzz experience more interactive than ever before. While Covid-19 has kept us in isolation for over a year, we know communication is critical and we wanted to leverage our large community and allow you to interact with each other.

Join the new Buzz Forum! Create your profile and add friends from the community! Now you won’t need a Facebook profile to comment on our feature articles. You can also make subgroups in our forum of your friends and get notified when there is a reply to your post.

With this new platform, we’ve created a community just for you. Here you can learn, network, and prosper by exchanging ideas with your peers and thought leaders in the industry.

Remember the Spanish Flu? Of course you don’t, but history tells us that the pandemic was followed by the “Roaring 20s.” One hundred years later, we are planning to do it again. If you are ready to bust out of captivity, we have a spectacular event planned. And yes, we believe this will be our biggest event ever.
