In addition to performing appraisals for his clients Tom Horn is also active in speaking at local real estate offices and agent meetings to discuss the local Birmingham, Alabama area real estate market as well as educating agents on why and how appraisers do what they do. He shares market trends about the various communities and neighborhoods he performs work in. He also shares tips and tricks that agents can use when pricing their listings so that their pricing follows the process appraisers use. By doing this Tom has found that there is less of a discrepancy between the eventual contract price and the appraisal obtained for mortgage lending purposes. He welcomes invitations from local real estate offices to participate in sales meeting to help educate their agents.
