John Dingman, Chief Appraiser at AppraisalTek, is with us for a second week. If you missed last week's episode, you may want to catch it first before listening to this one. John was good enough to come on for a second week and answer your questions about AMCs.
Have you ever wanted to talk bluntly with a Chief Appraiser at an AMC? Dustin did and here it is. Thanks to John Dingman and AppraisalTek for allowing this to take place.
I see this question quite often from appraisers. Can you use the subject itself as a comparable sale and put it in the grid? Today we tackle that question and not only come up with an answer philosophically, but we also have the answer as to how Fannie Mae feels about it. Welcome to our first ever Appraiser Coach Podcast Minisode.
Out first in a new series called "Appraiser Stories." Get to know appraisers across the country. Why did they get into this crazy profession? How they work and a little bit about their personal life. Welcome our first volunteer; Matt Frentheway of Utah.
Appraisers are sometimes fearful of moving to a mobile format because of the recordkeeping rule. What happens to your work file when you switch to mobile appraising? In this episode, we tackle that question and many others surrounding the switch to mobile appraising or going paperless.
It is something appraisers fear, but do we understand? Blacklisting; or being put on a lender's Do Not Use list. In this episode, we tackle your questions on what Blacklisting is, why it happens, how to avoid it, and what to do once it happens to you.
Appraisers have lots of questions about errors and omission insurance. Rightfully so. It can be a confusing subject. Does it matter which company you go with? When should you file a claim? Will your premiums rise if you do file a claim? What kind of service can you expect to have if you need defense? David Brauner of OREP Insurance is here to answer all of these questions.
As humans, we spend a lot of time doing nothing. We are not immune as real estate appraisers. A big part of efficiency is to make use of that down time such as the time we spend in the car. Have you ever considered hiring a driver to take the wheel so you can sit in the passenger seat and get more work done? Dustin has and tells you all about how to do it in this episode.
Theyare all over the country. a la mode Roadshows. Have you been? Are you planning to go? What are they all about? Paul Stansberry is a man of many miles and is here to tell us all about the history, present situation, and future of the a la mode roadhshows.

In this episode, Dustin attempts to answer the question "How are you able to do so many more appraisals than your peers without cutting the quality of your appraisal work?" For the Workshop referenced several times in this episode, click this link https://theappraisercoach.com/workshop/
Collateral Underwriting (CU) is upon us. Did it hit us the way we all feared it would? Ann O-Rourke joins me to talk it over. Is it possible the CU is actually making us better appraisers?
If you are going to listen to this podcast, you probably ought to know a bit about the host, Dustin Harris. In this episode, Dustin tells a bit about his background, what made him successful as a real estate appraiser, and why he is not teaching principles to other appraisers.
