BPOSG – Broker Price Opinion Standards and Guidelines is a compilation of standards and best practices for BPO practitioners – real estate agents and brokers. A Broker Price Opinion (BPO) is a report prepared by a real estate agent or broker that details the probable selling price of a house or property. The standards and guidelines in BPOSG are utilized to determine the probable selling price of residential real estate properties. Consider BPOSG as a set of quality control measures that adhere to the fundamentals, techniques, procedures, and best practices for real estate price evaluations.
The standards portion dictates what a BPO practitioner must do, such as ethics and conduct, disclosures, proper application of techniques, etc. Guidelines are best practices and procedures that are widely accepted yet allow for flexibility in application. The guidelines contained in BPOSG allow for flexibility to meet a diversity of requirements needed throughout the valuation industry.
NABPOP integrates BPOSG into a BPO Certification process. NABPOP grants a certification and designation based on knowledge and application of BPOSG and related real estate pricing and valuation techniques, processes, and procedures.
The current version of BPOSG is Version 5.0 as of March 2022. BPOSG is a living document and will evolve as the BPO industry evolves.
