Licensed Residential Real Property Appraiser

For federally related transactions, a residential real property appraiser license entitles the holder to appraise noncomplex residential property of one to 4 units having a transaction value of less than $1,000,000 and complex residential property of one to 4 units having a transaction value of less than $250,000. For purposes of this section, "complex residential property of one to 4 units" means property that is atypical based on the nature of the property, the form of ownership or the market conditions. For nonfederally related transaction appraisals, "transaction value" means market value. A residential real property appraiser license entitles the holder to appraise vacant or unimproved land that is used for one to 4 family purposes or for which the highest and best use is for one to 4 family purposes. A residential real property appraiser license does not entitle the holder to appraise subdivisions for which a development analysis and appraisal is necessary.
