NAR Comments to Appraiser Qualifications Board

On March 29, 2016, NAR submitted a comment letter to the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) in response to their exposure draft concerning proposed changes to the AQB's Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria. NAR re-iterated recommendations made to the AQB by letter in September 2015, in particular the need to re-evaluate the need for a Bachelor’s degree for Certified General and Certified Residential classifications. NAR also recommended the AQB revise the use of the term "Trainee" and the three-year residency requirement for Supervisory Appraisers.
