Real Estate Appraiser Qualifying Education and Examination Requirements

May 1, 2018 Update - Important Notice Regarding Appraiser Qualification Criteria

On April 30, 2018, the Colorado Board of Real Estate Appraisers, within the Division of Real Estate, held an Emergency Rulemaking Hearing and adopted new rule changes to the Real Estate Appraiser Program, to be effective May 1, 2018.


Recently, the Appraisal Qualifications Board of the Appraisal Foundation changed the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria.  A summary of these changes, which are effective May 1, 2018, can be found at the Appraisal Foundation Website.


The Colorado Board of Real Estate Appraisers incorporated these new Appraisal Qualifications Board changes into the Colorado Real Estate Appraiser Rules, and they are effective May 1, 2018.

If you are applying for an initial appraiser license or upgrading to a new credential (Licensed Appraiser, Certified Residential Appraiser, or Certified General Appraiser) on or after May 1, 2018, these new qualifications will apply to any applicant. If you applied with the Division prior to May 1, 2018, the old qualifications will apply to those applicants.

If you have any questions in this regard, please contact the Division at 303-894-2166.
