JolobinSmokin: ... camera that could take 26 pic's....Really took off when i could just ......until around 2pm when i check my fancy P.O. box address that actually says suite # instead of P.O. box because for some reason banks liked to see that and i didn't want angry customer's showing up to my house...... take some photo's for new construction on a lake in oklahoma, then drive back to tulsa inspect a forelcosed duplex......Tomorrow, i'll leave the house... they don't really move to quickly ......Then on Wednesday & thursday i'll sit at home all day typing listening to music drinking beer and smoking pot, and when i'm finished with the reports I......It's beautiful and i love it......6 figures a year while your in your underwear...
Mr. Coffee Nerves: The thrill of furtively masturbating under my desk while staring at the cleaning lady is sharply reduced whem I'm at home.
JolobinSmokin: There is alot of small scale statistical modeling you have to do for your neighborhood, town, city and expand that onto seperate trends of growth, decline, revitalization and their affect on value.You have to search for alot of data pick out the best that supports the market value and include that into a well written report to have to be understandable to regular people by law. You need computer skills, allgebra, small amounts of Trig and Geometry and even though i don't really need it I use Calculus a few times a day.
JolobinSmokin: lewismarktwo: JolobinSmokin: Richelieu: JolobinSmokin: ... camera that could take 26 pic's.Why do you need a degree to appraise real estate?Long answerWell it isn't as easy as walking up to someone's house and saying $250,000 or $1,200 000.There is alot of small scale statistical modeling you have to do for your neighborhood, town, city and expand that onto seperate trends of growth, decline, revitalization and their affect on value.You have to search for alot of data pick out the best that supports the market value and include that into a well written report to have to be understandable to regular people by law. You need computer skills, allgebra, small amounts of Trig and Geometry and even though i don't really need it I use Calculus a few times a day.So there are many standard we have to meet and you have to be able to do all this with a small amount of information(town of 5-10K) or with large amount of info, large city like Tulsa or OKC.Small amounts of data are harder to follow trends. Large amounts of Data are harder because there are so many trends.This new house that sold for 100K, but a house sold just like it across the street for $98,750, that % change in value of say a seven month period, you have to calculate the difference and add that or subtract that value from your comparable sales depending on if it's a stable/declining/increasing market. All of which has to be studied and calculated on a individual basis per each house.Plus alot more math and other stuff i don't really care to explain right now.
Fark_Guy_Rob: Most people are lazy sobs.I worked at a company that used to allow telecommuting. But lazy people ruined it. Far too many people abused the system. They stayed home and did nothing.The truth is, I'd be willing to take a significant pay cut (and the company would save on equipment/office space) if I could telecommute 100% of the time. The real benefit (for me anyway) would be going to the middle of Montana and buying a nice house with lots of land for 150k with low, low property tax and a 0% sales tax. I could still work for the same Chicago-based company, but instead of feeling poor with my 80k salary, I could live like a king with my 60k salary.// If anyone is hiring....let me know ;)
Slives: Sometimes there are personal reasons for choosing to not telecommute. In my case, I could be 100% work at home, but with a stay at home wife and 2 kids in the house, it is not a good work environment.With kids that want to check in on dad all the time and a wife that has admitted she gets frustrated when watching the kids while I 'just sit up there on the computer' while working.So it is a lot safer for me and my marriage to get out of the house to work.
smerfnablin: If you ever had to be on a conference call with sales reps/engineers that are working from home and all you can hear are their screaming kids in the background, then you should know the answer to this question
Pincy: slayer199: The ironic thing is that if I work from home, I tend to work longer hours with fewer breaks and distractions....despite the fact I may end up working in my underwear all day.It's not ironic. Been working 100% at home for over four years now. When people ask me if there are any drawbacks I always tell them "The bad thing about working from home is that you are always at work." It's very easy to put in 50 hours a week without batting an eye.
Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: As much as I'd rather telecommute, there are some advantages to being on site for me:(1) it drags my ass out of the house daily and forces a disciplined schedule on me.(2) Sadly, we're not a paperless office, so I still need access to the physical files sometimes.(3) Coworkers do, in fact, make one's brain think about things you wouldn't think about if you weren't physically present. Sure, the chairwhale in the next cube may be droning on and on about jellybeans, but that can strangely spur your brain to remember the update the TPS report.(4) And sometimes the chairwhale does have good ideas that you wouldn't have otherwise have heard if you weren't nearby.Whatever, though: I just want to nap at the office and maybe bring my cat.
