What is the PSA Certification?
The National Association of REALTORS® offers the PSA certification to REALTORS®. Determining property values depends on professional expertise and competence, the best use of technology, and a commitment to approach the pricing assignment from various perspectives.
As Marc Gould, Executive Director of the Center for Specialized REALTOR® Education, explains, “Consumers deserve accurate property value assessments, so NAR is proud to provide REALTORS® with a credential that provides enhanced tools, education, and expertise to determine the most accurate value for a home.”
The one-day required course “Pricing Strategies: Mastering the CMA” provides REALTORS® with knowledge and skills to select appropriate comparables, make accurate adjustments, guide sellers and buyers through the details of a comparative market analysis and the underlying pricing principles that inform them, and interact effectively with appraisers. In addition to completing the course, participants are required to view two required webinars.
