Real Estate Appraiser Information for the State of New Mexico

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 New Mexico, the New Mexico Real Estate Appraisers Board (NMREAB) is in charge of this oversight.

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

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

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