Real Estate Appraiser resources for Georgia

Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Georgia

Real estate appraisers are required to be licensed, per Title XI of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act (FIRREA) of 1989.    This act required that each of the states establish an agency for the licensure, certification, and regulation of appraisers.

In Georgia, The Georgia Real Estate Commission & Appraisers Board (GREC) is in charge of this oversight.

There are five classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Georgia.  These classifications are:

  1. State Trainee Appraiser
  2. State Registered Appraiser (similar to State Trainee Appraiser, except when purpose of the appraisal is for use in a federally related financial transaction)
  3. State Licensed Appraiser
  4. State Certified Residential Appraiser
  5. State Certified General Appraiser

Those new to a career in real estate appraisals must begin as a State Trainee Appraiser.  There is no experience required.  However, it is necessary to complete the state required coursework to become a State Trainee Appraiser.  The trainee must then work under a supervisor for a specified number of hours in order to be eligible to become a licensed or certified appraiser.
