Salem - Live Appraisal Class

Persistent Appraisal Failures

About The Class

The Appraisal Quality Monitoring System (AQM) along with the computer system known as the Collateral Underwriter (CU) "review" tens of thousands of appraisals each day.  Despite the implementation of this system, extensive feedback and outreach, high appraisal failure rates persist.  This class outlines many of the most common failures noted by the CU, appraisal review, and interviews with chief appraisers of AMCs and lenders.  This class will explain the failures and offer solutions that should help appraisers reduce the call-backs, "Fatal Warnings," "Hard Stops"  and the need for time wasting corrections.  The class is designed to help appraisers produce better appraisals and make more money.

In the class you will learn of issues related to:

  • New methods used to monitor appraisers
  • How the "review" system of today is different from yesterday
  • The new tools available to review appraisers
  • Persistent use of MLS photographs
  • Upgrades vs. Condition
  • Age vs. Effective Age
  • Adjustments
  • Fixed vs. Relative
  • Meaningless text that gets appraisers in trouble
  • Best comparables
  • Highest and Best Use Analysis
