Real Estate Appraiser resources for Maryland

Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Maryland

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 Maryland, the Maryland Commission of Real Estate Appraisers, Appraisal Management Companies, and Home Inspectors is in charge of this oversight.

There are four classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Maryland.  These classifications are:

  1. Appraiser Trainee
  2. Licensed Real Estate Appraiser
  3. Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser
  4. Certified General Real Estate Appraiser

Those new to a career in real estate appraisals must begin as a Appraiser Trainee.  There is no experience required.  However, it is necessary to complete the state required coursework to become a Appraiser Trainee.  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.
