Think Like an Appraiser

John and Kalen Sledge researched their first value-add real estate project in 2012. John was a residential real estate appraiser and knew they needed to “think like an appraiser” to determine the renovation budget for the project and to decide where to use their renovation dollars. John always dreaded the appraisal of a home where renovation mistakes were made but could have been avoided with proper research and due diligence. Using John’s expertise gained while appraising 10,000+ homes and analyzing over 50,000 comparable sales John and Kalen created a process to analyze the buy, to determine the quality rating of the home before and after renovation, to estimate the ARV, and the renovation dollar amount for their own projects.

After 8 years of successful real estate investing and streamlining their research process, John and Kalen are now teaching others how to research and “think like an appraiser” before buying real estate. Think Like an Appraiser is an education company offering classes, resources, webinars, “Q&A” sessions, and one-on-one coaching. They provide several learning platform options to meet the current needs of each student and create an experience where true understanding takes place.
