    What Is Bracketing And Why Do We Do It?

    In this podcast, we discuss the topic of bracketing.  Most lenders want to see it done, not everyone understands it, and appraisers don’t like it when they feel pressured to do it!  So what exactly is bracketing?

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.
