Iowa State Page – Appraisers

Iowa, fondly called the “American Heartland,” is home to over 1,000 real estate appraisers and is one of the few states where the majority of licensed appraisers carry the Certified General appraisal license, meaning they are qualified to perform appraisals on commercial properties. Many lenders and appraisal clients in the state require Iowa Appraiser’s Errors and Omissions Insurance.

OREP specializes in placing errors and omissions insurance for real estate appraisers and agents/brokers in Iowa. OREP offers the lowest rates on appraiser’s insurance with same day coverage & confirmation (most cases).
