Upgrading to Certified Residential
Licensed appraisers who are interested in upgrading to certified residential should note that Massachusetts adopted an AQB interpretation concerning the number of hours of appraisal qualifying education required to qualify for the exam. In order to upgrade from licensed appraiser to certified residential in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, a licensed appraiser needs to complete 50 hours of appraisal qualifying education. The specific courses are:
Statistics, Modeling & Finance
Advanced Residential Applications & Case Studies
Mastering Unique and Complex Property Appraisal for 20 hours
Note: In order to upgrade to certified residential applicants must also meet the college education and experience criteria established by the AQB.
