Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of Nebraska

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 Nebraska, the Nebraska Real Property Appraiser Board (NRPAB) is in charge of this oversight.

There are four classifications of real estate appraiser in the State of Nebraska.  These classifications are:

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

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