Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Missouri

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 Missouri, the Missouri Division of Professional Registration, Real Estate Appraisers Commission (MREAC) is in charge of this oversight.

There are six classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Missouri. These classifications are:

  1. State-licensed appraiser trainee
  2. State-licensed real estate appraiser
  3. State-certified residential appraiser trainee
  4. State-certified residential real estate appraiser
  5. State-certified general appraiser trainee
  6. State-certified general real estate appraiser

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