When you're in need of a certified Fair Market Valuation, be sure to inquire about the contractor representative's qualifications. Several professional appraiser organizations provide designations to their accredited members. These designations represent an elite level of qualifications knowledge and experience that you will benefit from when engaging a certified professional to provide your valuations.
The American Society of Appraisers administers a thorough process of evaluation, ensuring only the most educated and experienced professionals are awarded its Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) designation. To receive the Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) designation from the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA), one must meet standards for ethics, objectivity, and professional competence. These certifications reflect a commitment to excellence.
Additionally, find out whether your appraisal will comply with Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), which ensures quality control. USPAP was established in the 1980s and is updated biyearly to ensure that current best practices are followed throughout the industry.
