Real Estate Appraiser resources for Colorado

Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Colorado

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 Colorado, the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) is in charge of this oversight.

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

  1. Licensed Ad Valorem Appraiser (only for appraiser employees of county tax assessment offices)
  2. Licensed Appraiser
  3. Certified Residential Appraiser
  4. Certified General Appraiser

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