BBB Business Reviews may not be reproduced for sales or promotional purposes.

Appraisers

Before hiring an appraiser, determine his or her qualifications and licensing status. In Florida, the state regulates appraisals of real property under Florida Statue 475. Appraisers registered, licensed, or certified under the statue are required to comply with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). While real estate brokers or salespersons may in ordinary course of business perform a comparative market analysis or give an opinion of the value of real estate, this opinion should not be referred to, or construed as an appraisal. Appraisals are provided by certified, licensed or registered appraisers. To verify that a Florida appraiser holds a valid state license or certification as an appraiser, you may wish to contact the Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board at (407) 245-0800 or online at www.state.fl.us/dbpr/. Additional information on appraisal standards is available from Appraisal Foundation web site at www.appraisalfoundation.org If you are being asked to obtain an appraisal in order to list a timeshare for sale you may want to contact the resort for guidance in finding an appraiser.
