What are the requirements for including appraisals in listings?

Appraisal documents or valuations may only be mentioned/shown if the person executing the appraisal has an earned accreditation from a nationally recognized professional appraisal organization such as the American Society of Appraisers , International Society of Appraisers, or the Appraisers Association of America. Note: the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) is not an appraisal organization (See http://4cs.gia.edu/en-us/blog/appraisal-tips/)
