Nonresident Appraiser License

Trainee Real Property Appraiser

Trainee Real Property Appraiser license level applicants must complete all Minnesota education and exam licensing requirements for the Trainee level.

Complete the license application


Licensed Residential, Certified Residential, and Certified General Real Property Appraiser

  • Complete the license application
  • Submit one of the following: 
    • (a) a letter from your home state indicating that the appraiser licensing entity in that state has reviewed your work experience within the last five years; or 
    • (b) a completed Minnesota Appraiser Experience Verification Log & Form showing six months of experience.
  • Identify the state in which you currently hold a Certified General or Certified Residential Real Property Appraiser license.
  • You do not need to include your education as part of your online application.

Please note

Minnesota has not adopted the May 2018 changes to the Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria. If your jurisdiction has adopted some or all of those changes, your application may require the submission of additional information.


Reciprocal Appraiser Licenses

Licensed Residential Real Property Appraiser, Certified Residential Real Property Appraiser, and Certified General Real Property Appraiser

Under Minnesota law, the education, experience, and examination requirements for receiving a Minnesota licensed residential, certified residential, or certified general appraiser license may be waived for a nonresident if both of the following are true:

  • The individual is licensed in another jurisdiction and is listed in good standing on the National Registry maintained by the Appraisal Subcommittee; and
  • The licensing requirements of that jurisdiction are substantially similar to the provisions of Minnesota’s appraiser licensing law (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 82B).

Applying for a Reciprocal License (licensed residential, certified residential, or certified general)

  1. Complete the license application.
  2. You do not need to include your education and experience verification as part of your online application. You simply need to submit a letter of certification (no more than 90 days old) from your home state.

Trainee Real Property Appraiser

Reciprocity does not apply to the Trainee Real Property Appraiser license level. Applicants for a Trainee Real Property Appraiser license must complete all Minnesota licensing requirements for the Trainee level.
