Real Estate Appraiser Information for the Commonwealth of Kentucky

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 Kentucky, the Kentucky Real Estate Appraisers Board (KREAB) is in charge of this oversight.

There are four classifications of real estate appraiser in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  These classifications are:

  1. Associate Appraiser (Trainee)
  2. Licensed Real Property Appraiser
  3. Certified Residential Appraiser
  4. Certified General Appraiser

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