Explanation: It's most important to have a State Certified General Appraiser license for commercial appraisals. Designations from private organizations can be helpful. However, Certified General Appraisers licensed by the State will typically have the same expertise as those with supplemental private designation. Of note, appraisers in all states require a license to prepare appraisals, but do require a designation from a private trade association.
