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.




The North Carolina Appraisal Board is making available to each appraiser, trainee, and AMC compliance manager in North Carolina one copy (either in print or digital) of the 2024 edition of USPAP and the 2024 USPAP Guidance and Reference Manual at the cost of $35.00. (Direct orders from The Appraisal Foundation will cost $110.00 per set.) Copies will be sent directly from The Appraisal Foundation to the address provided on the order form. The Board will not have additional copies to send and will not accept orders received/postmarked after October 6, 2023. All hand delivered orders must be in by 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 5th as our office building will be closed on Friday, October 6th. The order form can be found under the forms tab above.

Appraisers - Late Renewals

Renewals are due each year by June 30th. If you failed to renew by June 30th, your license is lapsed, and you may no longer perform any appraisal work. It is a violation of state law to perform work as an appraiser when not licensed to do so. For twelve months after a license lapses, a licensee may reinstate their license (once all the CE has been completed and reported by the sponsor) by paying the renewal fee, the National Registry fee (if desired) and a late fee of $10.00 per month. From 12 months - 5 years after the license lapses, the licensee must complete a new application, new criminal background check, the original application fee, and have completed all required CE. Reinstatement is not retroactive.

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.
