This is the description from our webinar that was presented in February 2018. Please check back for a modified description. Topics may be updated, but registration is now open.

The past few years have seen significant developments in real estate appraisals and evaluation rules and regulations. Revised Interagency Guidelines and new rules under Reg Z have been issued, and we've seen additional requirements finalized recently due to Dodd-Frank. In some cases (called "flipping transactions"), lenders will even have to obtain two appraisals on the same property for one loan.

Because breakdowns in appraisal practices have been partly blamed for the mortgage crisis, regulators have raised their expectations; lenders' appraisal and evaluation programs must include more elements than ever before. Some themes now emphasized by the agencies are independence of the appraiser, and evaluator, reviews, and qualifications.

There are also restrictions against using AVMs (automated valuation models), BPOs (broker price opinions), and tax valuations that have upset many in the industry.

Do you know the requirements? We'll provide in-depth details of the appraisal and valuation process, from both the lender and appraiser side of the game, to provide a thorough understanding of what is required and what you need.
