Real Estate Appraiser resources for Connecticut

Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Connecticut

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 Connecticut, the Connecticut Real Estate Appraisal Commission is in charge of this oversight.

There are three classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Connecticut.  These classifications are:

  1. Provisional Licensed Appraiser (trainee)
  2. Certified Residential Appraiser
  3. Certified General Appraiser

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