About Us

The Coalition of Pennsylvania Real Estate Appraisers was formed in late 2012 by the five Pennsylvania Chapters of the Appraisal Institute and other interested appraisal professionals to be the voice of real estate valuation in Pennsylvania. We are a non-profit organization whose goal is to ensure the protection of all consumers by promoting the use of accurate, reliable, and independent real estate valuation services. This goal is furthered by actively monitoring relevant legislative actions at the state level that affect the valuation community and the public.

CPREA's Objectives

  • Work to promote the appraisal profession and its image to the general public and to all users of appraisal services.
  • Initiate discussion and analysis of issues affecting professional appraisers.
  • Monitor political action with the intent to influence legislation, regulation and public opinion toward the appraisal profession, by identifying the Pennsylvania appraisal profession as a recognized, collective voice in the legislative and regulatory debate.
  • Represent a professional appraisal “consensus” to the Pennsylvania Legislature and relevant state regulatory agencies.
  • Provide a legislative and regulatory liaison to associated professions and industries.
  • Provide ongoing, timely information about relevant legislative and regulatory events.
  • Create and maintain a method of funding through contributions to make the coalition self-sufficient.

CPREA will not:

  • Develop or offer professional appraisal "designations."
  • Develop or provide educational courses.
  • Sell software, data, magazines or other publications.
