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 next year.  Even though the Appraisal Standards Board has extended the 2020-2021 edition of USPAP for another year, there is a new 7-Hour USPAP course.  The new course is available now and 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.  Since there is not a new edition of USPAP, the Board is not ordering USPAP books this year.   For further information on the extension, and the USPAP course, please click here .


Due to the pandemic, the Board office is currently open for deliveries and drop-offs only.  Our office hours are from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  We have a basket located on the second floor to receive applications and other correspondence. If you need to meet with a member of staff, please contact the office so that we may schedule a virtual meeting. Any questions can be addressed to or using the office directory at 919-870-4854. Gmail account users should check their junk/spam folders for responses from the Board.





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.
