Issac Peck, Editor of Working RE Magazine, joins us to discuss his recent article:

 

The Decline of Appraisers

 

This is a short, informative article that really nails down the problem facing the future population of appraisers and (more importantly) what we can do about it.  In the article, Issac gives a call to action.  Here is the contact information you will need to participate:

 

Appraisers are encouraged to submit their (concise and considered) comments to the AQB before the March 31, 2016 deadline: Email: aqbcomments@appraisalfoundation.org or mail to: Appraiser Qualifications Board, The Appraisal Foundation, 1155 15th Street, NW, Suite 1111, Washington, DC 20005.

Dave Towne (dtowne@fidalgo.net) is back to let us know about a little known provision in TRID which REQUIRES an estimate of value from the borrower before the appraisal process takes place.  This could lead to some interesting situations.

What is the proper way to go about hiring employees and contractors to help in an appraisal office?  Can you hire a Tier III person out of the box?  It is important to not only get the right people on the bus (and the wrong people off the bus), but to put them in the right seats.
