The North Carolina Appraisal Board welcomes you to its Web site.

The mission of the North Carolina Appraisal Board is to protect consumers of real estate services provided by its licensees by assuring that these licensees are sufficiently trained and tested to assure competency and independent judgment. In addition, the Board will protect the public interest by enforcing state law and Appraisal Board rules to assure that its licensees act in accordance with professional standards and ethics.



All trainees and appraisers must complete the 2022-2023 7 Hour USPAP Update by May 31, 2022, in order to renew in 2022.  The course will require each student to have a copy of the 2020-2021 USPAP book, the 2022-2023 7-Hour National USPAP Course Student Manual and the 2022 USPAP Reference Manual.  These publications can either be in print or digital.  Students should check with their course provider to see if these books will be provided with the class or if they need to be acquired in advance from the Appraisal Foundation. Please note that we will begin accepting renewals the first week of May and a reminder will be sent as we get closer to May.  The 2022-2023 7 HR USPAP Update must be reported to the Board and showing in your CE record before you are eligible to renew. 



While the Board does not require you complete the ANSI course in order to renew your license, Fannie Mae will require appraisers to use the Square Footage-Method for Calculating: ANSI® Z765-2021 (American National Standards Institute®) Measuring Standard for measuring, calculating, and reporting gross living area (GLA) and non-GLA areas of subject properties for appraisals requiring interior and exterior inspections with effective dates of April 1, 2022 or later on loans sold to Fannie Mae.

The North Carolina Appraisal Board believes that the appraisal profession should reflect the diversity of our State. To further this mission, the Board is dedicated to expanding diversity and inclusivity in the profession by removing barriers that limit the opportunities of any qualified individual to become an appraiser.
