Special Edition Webinar – ANSI Basics for Non-appraisers

Prepare yourself for the latest Fannie Mae appraisal requirement. As of April 1, 2022, Fannie Mae requires all appraisers to measure, calculate, and report the gross living area and non-gross living area of single family dwellings in accordance with ANSI® Z765-2021. This requirement applies to single-family appraisals requiring interior and exterior inspections.

This webinar was designed for non-appraiser real estate professionals, including appraisal reviewers, underwriters, AMC personnel, and other professionals who rely on appraisals or monitor appraisal quality. In this webinar recording, you will learn about the basics of ANSI, how finished basements and ADUs are considered, what is considered above grade, and how to tell if the appraiser followed ANSI guidelines.

An extraordinary assumption should only be used for situations when there is uncertainty based on research or observations. In this job aid, you’ll learn how to differentiate between an extraordinary assumption and a general assumption.
