Josh is back and he addresses how regression tools can help, but makes it clear they are not the end all/be all of adjustment support. Listen in as he describes how regression can be a great tool and it does not have to take a lot of time. Two links for items discussed in the podcast.
There were many comments following this recent blog article:

They say there is a shortage of appraisers in Denver, but we sure have interviewed a lot of appraisers from there lately. Jeff spends a lot of time doing VA stuff and you will love his scary story.
Last week, Dustin shared his experience with joining a local gym. This week, he reveals the gym he joined (hint, it is alluded to in the title) and why you might want to consider it as well. It seems like the perfect gym for appraisers.

What does an appraiser in the training process have to say about the appraisal profession. Join us as Dustin interviews Mike Taylor from Austin, TX.
What do you do when you pull up to the comp and there are people in the front yard? Do you take the picture? Are you required to do so? What does FHA say about it?
