Appraisal Review Division

This division reviews all Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration (MDOT SHA) Office of Real Estate (ORE) appraisals. Appraisal review services are also provided to other MDOT business units and State agencies, as well as local public agencies. 

Our Guidelines for Right-of-Way Appraisals​ can be found here; it has been prepared as a source of information of appraisal requirements for the preparation of narrative appraisals for right-of-way and other acquisitions, as well as for the disposition of excess real property. 

All approved appraisers should understand that these requirements are minimum to an appraisal report and that additional data, when warranted, should be included by the appraiser to fully document a report as recognized by generally accepted appraisal standards. 

If you are interested in becoming an approved appraiser, please complete the required documents that can be found here​.​
