Video: What Is an Assignment Condition?
In this popular Q&A video, The Appraisal Foundation gives a thorough response to the following question from an appraiser: “My state’s appraiser regulatory agency sent out a newsletter that says a due date is an assignment condition, and that failing to adhere is a violation of USPAP. Is that true?”
Checklist: FHA Checklist
The “FHA Property Observation Checklist” is designed to provide an example of what appraisers look for during an inspection. It is recommended that each appraiser develop their own checklist with questions about factors and issues that they regularly encounter in their market. However, this highly-rated sample checklist is a great place to start.
Job Aid: Defining Market Value
Most mortgage financing requires a Market Value Opinion when developing a mass appraisal. Additionally, Standard Rule: 1-2 establishes that an appraiser must (c) Identify the type and definition of value. But what does “market value” mean? This one-page job aid answers that question and more.
These tools are just a small sampling of what you’ll find in the Unlimited Learning Membership toolkit. Enjoy access to all of these appraisal resources, plus many more, when you join.
