Definition and standards:

Professional appraisals are more than opinions, they require selective research of the appropriate market areas, assemblage of pertinent data, the application of appropriate analytical techniques, and the knowledge, experience and professional judgement necessary to develop a conclusion that is appropriate to the problem. Professional judgment is a critical factor. Although a scientific method is applied throughout the appraisal process, appraising is not an exact science. The making of a judgment in the formulation of a conclusion is based on and supported by, facts developed by research. The competent appraiser gathers and selects relevant information, applies expertise to the processing of information, maintains complete objectivity and high ethical standards and develops a valid conclusion. In forming the conclusion, the appraiser recognizes and clearly identifies the difference among personal opinions, observes the facts, and professional judgments. An estimation of market value reflects market attitudes and actions. Personal positions are out of place.
