Writing an appraisal report is writing for a deadline. The clock is ticking for both the appraiser and the client.

Both parties feel the pressure, but it is the report writer who bears the responsibility for clear communication. Effective Report Writing: A Guide for Appraisers and Reviewers will help practitioners fulfill that responsibility by carefully considering the purpose and execution of the reporting task and by applying the techniques of professional writers to the report-writing process.
