    Promoting Public Trust: The Appraiser & Bias

    So what is bias from an appraiser’s perspective?  Again, according to USPAP, bias is “a preference or inclination that precludes an appraiser’s impartiality, independence, or objectivity in an assignment.  An appraiser must always be impartial, independent and objective.  Unbiased.

    Hypothetical Conditions & Extraordinary Assumptions

    Hypothetical Conditions and Extraordinary Assumptions. All of this sounds like a bunch of weird appraisal-ese. Language no one else would ever use, or ever care to know about. So why write about it? Well, in fact, many appraisals use this language, and you need to know what it means!

Always looking forward to next episode

Ryan Bays, and special guests, answer crucial questions helping consumers understand the home appraisal process. Ryan helps one think about what market value really is versus what what some have accepted as truth. I’m challenged to become a better Appraiser with each episode. And, I appreciate Ryan sharing his faith and how it applies to valuation. Looking forward to each new episode! Bill Cobb Appraiser in Baton Rouge.
