Integrity refers to both the moral character of the appraiser, as well as the quality and content of the completed appraisal. Personal, professional, intellectual and artistic integrity are demonstrated throughout the appraisal process.

  • Professional integrity is reflected by thorough knowledge and research coupled with consistent application of best practices and professional ethics adopted by the industry.
  • Personal integrity involves being honest with yourself and others and consistently acting in a manner that is in conformance with your beliefs and value system.
  • Intellectual integrity in appraisal is best reflected by analysis and problem solving that is grounded in the scientific method to the extent that is possible and seeks to test and explain market behaviors through careful analysis and making observations from empirical evidence, in contrast to the well known "trust me" standard.
  • Artistic integrity comes from the creative problem solving process. The mental process of searching for a solution to an appraisal problem which is often not obvious. Creative solutions often have an "elegant" characteristic and may involve a simple change of perspective. It focuses on divergent thinking, the ability to develop multiple ideas and concepts to solve problems.
