What is an IFA designation?
At Metro Appraisals, our appraisers are IFA-Member designated. What does this mean? An IFA – Member is a designation conferred to a residential appraisal specialist who is a Member of the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers (NAIFA).
NAIFA was founded in 1961 as a nonprofit professional association of real estate appraisers. Today, NAIFA has chapters throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The Association’s objectives are to raise the standards of the appraisal profession, gain recognition for its members as qualified professionals, and to promote fellowship among appraisers. There are seven levels of membership with four professional designations, and two designation programs for designated members of other associations that sponsor The Appraisal Foundation.
