Washington Real Estate Appraiser License

The first step to your appraisal career is to complete the pre-licensing courses from a trusted education provider. McKissock Learning received an incredible rating from its students, and their online lessons are taught by instructors who have actual experience in the appraisal industry. You may click here to find out more about their courses.

How to Become an Appraiser Trainee in Washington?

To start your career as an appraiser, your first step is to become a Appraiser Trainee.

At this stage, you will be trained and supervised by a certified appraiser. An experienced supervisor could guide you into the right direction in this career. The supervisory appraiser should provide you with practical appraisal methods, how to conduct research on a property, how to extract important information from the data.  Of course, how to determine an unbiased estimation of the property’s market value.

Your daily routine could include doing property research, working on appraisal reports, or inspecting real estate together with the supervisor.

To get out the most from this trainee stage,  it is recommended you to walk through each and every step in the appraisal process, observe carefully on how your supervisor inspect and evaluate real estate, and always raise your questions.

Step 1: Meet the eligibility requirement:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • Have a valid Social Security Number
  • No prior related experience is needed

Step 2: Complete the pre-license education

The purpose of the real estate appraisal courses is to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become a professional appraiser. The courses cover different aspects of the appraisal process, from property valuation to report writing.

Students will learn how to use various appraisal topics such as Basic Appraisal Principals and Procedures, the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), Residential Report Writing and Case Studies.

At this stage, you need to complete the 75 hours of qualifying appraisal education, and AQB Supervisor/Trainee Course. 

Study tip: Whenever possible, I prefer to take online courses. You can study at your own pace at the convenient of your home, library, or wherever there is internet access. Here’s an article review of an online school that I like.

Step 3: Submit an application to the Washington State Department of Licensing

Now you have completed the education prerequisites, your next step is to register with WA Real Estate Appraiser Program.

If the Licensing Board in your state has the online submission available, then I would strongly encourage you to use that option. Not only this is the quickest and most convenient way, but less paper mailing is also good for the environment.

You will find more details about the application process later in the post.

Step 4: Work under the supervision of a Certified Appraiser

Realtors In Front Of A House

At the initial stage of your appraisal career, you are required to work under the supervision of a Certified Appraiser. They should provide you with adequate training that equips you to perform appraisals correctly and according to the regulatory requirement.
During the training period, you’ll observe and assist the Certified Appraiser in performing appraisals.

The supervisory appraiser is typically a more experienced appraiser who has been in the field for many years. They’ll be responsible for conducting reviews of appraisals and providing feedback to the trainee.

Although your assignment may involve appraising commercial property, this is only given if your supervisor is a Certified General Appraiser. Also, all supervisors must submit a supervising appraiser form to the Real Estate Appraiser Program to indicate who are Appraiser Trainees they are mentoring.

You might wonder how to find a mentor. You could start connecting with Certified Appraisers through different industry associations, forums or even on LinkedIn.

Here’s a snippet of what a Certified General Appraiser recommends when looking for a supervisor

“Along with the PROFESSIONAL resume you send by snail mail and email, enclose a document that thoroughly describes your house (or someone else’s house). I am talking about a thorough description.

In appraisal, we start with the big picture and work our way down to the details. So start with the community you live in and tell your prospective mentor about the community…”

Timothy S. Evans, SRA, Certified General Appraiser at Monroe Valuation, Inc 

Still unsure how to find a supervisor? No problem, here’s another post for you: “How to Find a Supervisory Appraiser? (Tips from CG Appraiser and Trainee).” In there, you will find full details of Timothy’s recommendation and 11 incredibly helpful ideas in finding a supervisory appraiser.

Once you start working alongside with a supervisor, you need to keep track of your working hours with the board-approved experience log. This document is important for the purpose of upgrading your appraiser license in the future.

Also, keep in mind that you and the supervising appraiser are required to sign on every page of the experience log.

How to Become a Certified Residential Appraiser in Washington?

Real Estate Agent Using Mobile Phone In New Property

As a Certified Residential Appraiser, you can assess for:

  • All types of residential property of 1-4 units without regard to transaction value or complexity
  • Non-residential property having a transaction value less than $250,000

Just like a Licensed Residential Appraiser, you could a self-employed appraiser running your own practice, servicing clients such as individuals, lenders, banks, or appraisal management companies (AMC).

Alternatively, you could work for an appraiser firm or financial institution to become their in-house appraiser, where you could enjoy the stable income and company’s benefits.

However, there is no restriction on the transaction value of residential properties you could assess. The scope of your practice and business opportunity would be a lot wider than being a Licensed Residential Appraiser. In fact, many reputable lenders and financial institutions in Washington only accept assessment work from Certified Appraiser.

So what is like to be a residential appraiser in Washington? I looked into some job postings and found one that might give you a better insight.

It was a government job posting from one of the Counties in Washington. There were 3 vacancies positions for Residential Appraiser. The primary duty of this job is to appraise residential properties, and lands work for tax assessment purposes in the County Assessor’s Office.

The daily tasks could involve:

  • Inspecting real properties such as residential condominiums, manufactured homes, and farms
  • Taking measurement and photos of real estates
  • Determining market value using the cost and market approaches
  • Analyzing building permits, maps, blueprints, and legal descriptions

This position offered many attractive benefits. For example, retirement fund contributions, medical, dental, long-term disability, and life insurance.

In the job posting, they also listed out the details of the vacation, sick leave, paid time off and others.

This was a full-time position. If you included the benefits into the total compensation, it would range about $46,000 to $62,000 per year.

Having said that, so let’s go through the steps for you to become a Certified Residential Appraiser.

Step 1: Meet the eligibility requirement

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • Have a valid Social Security Number
  • Complete one of the following college requirement
    • Option 1: Bachelor’s Degree or higher in any field of study
    • Option 2: Associate Degree in a specific field of study
    • Option 3: Completion of 30 semester hours of college-level courses in specific topic areas
    • Option 4: Completion of at least 30 semester hours of College Level Examination Program® that cover specific topics
    • Option 5: Completion of 30 semester credit hour combination of Option 3 (college) and Option 4 (CLEP®) 

Step 2: Acquire the work experience hours

You need to complete a minimum of 2500 hours of acceptable appraisal experience in not less than a 24 months period.

Step 3: Complete the appraisal education

You’ll need to complete 200 hours of qualifying appraisal education from an approved course provider.

Since you should have taken some of the courses when becoming an Appraiser Trainee or Licensed Residential Appraiser,  you are only required to complete the extra classes. 

Step 4: Submit an application to the Washington State Department of Licensing

Once you have fulfilled the education and working experience requirement, it’s time to submit the license application.

Most State Boards allow you to apply through their website. Some would even charge a lower registration fee by doing online. You should definitely check out this option.

Step 5: Pass the Certified Residential Appraiser Exam

The Certified Residential Appraiser Exam is a 6 hours exam with 110 questions. The required passing score is 75 or higher.

Cramming for the exam is ineffective. Instead, you should study for 45 to 60 minutes, then take a break. Concentration tends to wander if you study for too long. If possible, focus on studying only one to two topics per day. But be really good at it.

Here’s a Snippet of What Jamie Owen Thinks About Being a Real Estate Appraiser!

The more you learn, the more you will enjoy being an appraiser.”

I think that humility and honesty are the most important attributes. Humility is important because if we think we know it all, we are going to be in trouble. Being appraiser requires not being thin-skinned and defensive. Others have their opinions and we have ours. Both may be supportable in one way or another.

Being humble helps us to respect the views of others and not be offended if others have a different view. Humility also helps with business relationships, as well as accepting guidance and reminders when we need them, from peers and others.

– Jamie Owen, Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser at Aspen Appraisal Services

Here’s an exclusive interview with Jamie. He shared with us his journey and valuable experience in the appraisal industry. You’ll also learn what it is like to be a real estate appraiser nowadays. 

How to Become a Certified General Appraiser in Washington?

So you want to explore appraising for commercial real estate? Then becoming a Certified General Appraiser would be the way to go!

This designation is the highest credential you could get in the appraisal industry. You could assess all types of real estate regardless of the transaction value or complexity. There is no limitation on the scope of your appraisal work.

Although you still could evaluate for residential properties, you could also be appraise a portfolio of commercial real estates for institutional investors.

Since your clients depend on your appraisal reports in making an informed investment decision, you must be extremely careful and responsible when handling your work. Extensive research and site inspections are often required. It is your responsibility to provide your clients with an objective appraised value as accurate as possible.

Due to the requirement of low margin of error in your work products, the amount of work experience and education required to become a Certified General Appraiser is the most challenging among all the levels of licensing.

So what kind of jobs are available in the commercial real estate appraisal field in Washington?

At the time I’m writing this post, I see two interesting job postings which might give you some idea. They were both looking for a Commercial Real Estate Appraiser.

One of them is from a well-established appraisal firm in Bellevue. They had been in business for over 20 years. Their core services were to provide appraisals of commercial real estates and valuation of companies.

However, we noticed this was a contract position with fee split. With this business model, the chances were you would get paid whenever you complete an appraisal job order. The more reports you can write, the more you would make.

On the other hand, there was another job opening from another company in Downtown Seattle.

Despite this was a full-time hours position, you could manage your schedule. Their philosophy was that they believe in work-life balance, and they trusted their employees can handle their own agenda and get the job done.

They offered a competitive salary with performance bonuses and 401k plan. They also provided other perks such as reimbursement of licensing fees, tuition of continuing education and Appraisal Insitute dues.

They required you to have a minimum of 3 years experience as a Certified General Appraiser and also 10 years experience as an Appraiser.

Of course, the first step is to become a Certified General Appraiser, so let’s go through the steps to obtain this designation.

Step 1: Meet the eligibility requirement

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • Have a valid Social Security Number
  • Bachelor’s Degree in any field of study; or higher

Step 2: Complete the required hours of working experience

You must have at least 3000 hours of acceptable appraisal experience where they need to be obtained for over a 30 months period. At least 1500 hours of working experience needs to be from non-residential appraisal work.

Step 3: Fulfill the education requirement

You’ll need to complete 300 hours of qualifying appraisal education from an approved course provider.

The Certified General Appraiser Exam is a 6 hours exam with 110 questions. The required passing score is 75 or higher.

The final step is to pass the Certified General Appraiser Exam. Get enough sleep the night before the exam and have a good meal before it. Managing your stress level during the test is another key to passing it.
