New appraisal resources

Recorded webinar: Navigating Desktop Appraisals with Class Valuation’s INvision Technology

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s announcement about the acceptance of desktop appraisals for qualified mortgages has set the appraisal community abuzz. Whatever one’s opinion on desktop appraisals, the appraisal profession is evolving as more dynamic solutions are explored.

When faced with one of these assignments, appraisers are often uncertain as to what they are permitted to do and how to comply with USPAP. What are appraisers permitted to do and what shouldn’t they do when it comes to desktop appraisals? What is the appraiser’s potential liability for the property condition and physical characteristics since extraordinary assumptions are not allowed to be used? Experts explore these questions and more surrounding desktop appraisals, as well as provide a live demonstration of Class Valuation’s INvision technology.
