The Appraisal Foundation
The Appraisal Foundation (Foundation or TAF) is the nation’s foremost authority on the valuation profession.
The organization sets the Congressionally authorized standards and qualifications for real estate appraisers as well as qualifications for personal property appraisers and provides voluntary guidance on recognized valuation methods and techniques for all valuation professionals. This work advances the profession by ensuring that appraisals are independent, consistent, and objective.
Headquartered in Washington, DC, the Foundation also ensures that the profession adapts to changing circumstances and continues to move forward through the work of its two independent boards: the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB) and the Appraisal Standards Board (ASB). For more information on the Foundation, download An Overview of The Appraisal Foundation or visit our FAQs page.
The Appraisal Foundation interacts with over 90 non-profit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit companies through its Advisory Councils. Advisory Councils (TAFAC) provide recommendations to the Foundation on major issues pending before its independent Boards, the AQB and ASB. Recommendations are provided specifically on modifications to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), the AQB Criteria (Real Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria and Personal Property Appraiser Qualification Criteria) as well as other important projects.
