CMEAs and Undertakers

March 20, 2014

UndertakerNot two careers you normally associate with one another, are they? But there is one common thread between CMEAs and undertakers. What could it be? Read on …

There’s a very old saying that goes along the lines of “Even in the hardest of times, the undertaker never goes hungry.” In other words, the undertaker’s job is secure because he’s filling a role that everyone will eventually need.

Of course, not everyone will need a CMEA in their lifetime, but it’s a very secure and virtually recession-proof line of work. There’s a huge market for appraisal services because needs are not being met, and whether the economy is going up or coming down, appraisers make money.

Now, granted, you could take this concept and run with it and simply declare yourself a machinery and equipment appraiser. People have done it in the past and continue to do it to this day. But the CMEA designation raises you up and provides you with professional credentials that will make your reports stand up to scrutiny. A non-certified appraiser can’t say that. Would you go to an undertaker who lacked professional credentials? Of course not. Well, at the very least, we hope not!

The key to any successful business is to find a void and fill it. To that end, machinery and equipment appraisal offers what other industries don’t … an attractive diversification that offers both discipline and economic freedom.

Intrigued? Why not sign up for CMEA training today?

The NEBB Institute endorses and strives to observe the highest standards of professional ethics to preserve the public trust inherent in the professional appraisal practice. The Institute provides initial and monthly comprehensive education, ongoing support, and a dynamic international network, and certifies professionals in the art of machinery/equipment appraisal and brokerage.
