This webinar training will break down common terms used in the appraisal industry as well as cover the economics of real estate markets: the impact of the principles of value, the forces of value, and real estate market life cycles.

Why Should You Attend:

The Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines have put appraisals and their review front-and-center for financial institutions and examiners. Initially, the regulators focused on appraisal function compliance within larger banks. In recent years, however, examiners have shifted their focus to smaller institutions. As a result, appraisal function compliance has become a larger issue for community banks. This webinar lays the groundwork for better appraisal review compliance.

  • Learn how the regulators view the appraisal selection process and the review process
  • Learn what the regulators expect of appraisal reviewers
  • Learn basic review mechanics and the dos and don’ts of reviewing
  • Get tips for dealing with appraisers when the review identifies issues of concern
  • Learn methods to improve the quality of appraisal reports submitted to your financial institution

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The defined terms and a specific process in the appraisal industry that appraisers must follow
  • Economics of real estate markets: the impact of the principles of value, the forces of value, and real estate market life cycles
  • Regulatory requirements for reviewer independence and reviewer qualifications
  • Scaling the review assignment with the appraisal assignment and the transaction risk
