In recent years, the appraisal industry has come under scrutiny. The financial crisis of 2008 and the housing-bubble-burst led to industry changes and reforms, including the Home Valusation Code of Conduct (HVCC), the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, and the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD). How did these changes affect appraisers, reviewers, and the industry as a whole? Were they welcome? Were they effective? Better Safe Than Sorry will explore those questions as well as delve into the role of the reviewer, the obligations of the appraiser, relevant USPAP regulations, common errors appraisers can avoid, and importance of structured report writing.
This course meets from 10 am until 6 pm on the dates and at the locations listed.

The popularity of FHA insured financing is arguably at an all time high, and many certified appraisers are currently included, or seeking to be included on the FHA roster. Because many real estate sales transactions are being financed with FHA financing, it is important and welcomed for real estate brokerage professionals to also stay well informed regarding FHA protocol. Real estate brokerage professionals are typically on the front line of transactions and, therefore, must be well informed of the property criteria in counselling buyers and sellers regarding the applicability of a financing avenue to a particular property. Successful transactions, using FHA insured financing, depend upon the brokerage professional being keenly aware of property qualification criteria and the tests for which the property must withstand.
These courses meet from 1 pm until 6 pm on Saturdays and from 8 am until 10 pm on Sundays on the dates and at the locations listed.
