    Can a Realtor Challenge an Appraisal?

    Can a Realtor Challenge an Appraisal?

    Have you ever had a listing that didn’t appraise for contract price?  It’s frustrating, for sure – especially if you feel like you don’t have any options!  The home didn’t appraise for contract price, so the deal is dead, right?  Not at all!  When this happens, most parties have three options:  lower the sale price to the appraised value, have the buyer come out of pocket for the difference, or cancel the sale.  But those are all options you’ll need to consider after challenging the appraisal.

    ANSI Guidelines for Realtors

    ANSI Guidelines for Realtors

    I can’t think of a more polarizing topic – one that has completely shaken up the appraisal industry since the first part of 2022 – than ANSI.  In April, 2022, Fannie Mae announced that any home purchased by them will need to be measured using ANSI standards.  This has caused more than a little chaos and confusion, so this episode will help clear some of that up for you.

Student Appraiser

I joined your podcast as a student who’s about to start her journey to become an appraiser and I love it! I haven’t finished every episode but I’d love if you did one about becoming an appraiser & life as one day to day, they seem to be for people who are in need of one but I’d love to hear your side of it

Blurred lines

I was excited to start this podcast as an appraisal trainee but was pretty disappointed in an episode I listened to where Christian faith as it applies to appraisal (which does not apply at all) was discussed. A guest came on and shared two different stories of praying with a client before leaving their house. This was so strange and not in line with what an appraiser is to do. If you’re basing your decisions off of the fact that you “walk with Jesus” you’re not providing an unbiased, ethical appraisal. Jesus and religion have absolutely nothing to do with developing an opinion of value. It is also dangerous to encourage new appraisers to delve into clients personal issues and introduce their faith during a professional appraisal. So much liability and room for error there. It makes me skeptical about listening to the rest of the episodes.

Excellent appraisal podcast!

Ryan is very good with his conversational tone at breaking down the appraisal process and explaining it in layman’s terms. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone wanting to understand how appraisals are performed.
