 LIVE ONLINE CE COURSE

Evaluating Today’s Residential Appraisal: Reliable Review

Instructor: Josh Walitt
August 3, 2020

The need for appraisal reviews has increased in recent years for a variety of reasons: more pressure on lenders to evaluate the reliability and accuracy of appraisals, state laws requiring AMCs obtain appraisal reviews on certain percentages of appraisal reports received, more lawsuits, follow up steps related to bank-acquired properties following foreclosures, and many other reasons. However, the industry continues to have few review designations and there is no appraisal review license issued. Register through McKissock. 7 hours CE in approved states.
