So far in the past two weeks I have gotten three REO appraisals on subject that I did the original appraisal on two three years ago. Except for the damage done and a 2% drop in the market for these older rural homes I am coming in tight on the REO value compared to the original value. And I think they still can get them sold in 120 days and not loose but 1% to 3% on the deal. I am staying close to my original value using current comparable sales and and listings. Makes for a good bench mark I am thinking. As well as keeping one honest, knowing someday you may need to state why your appraisal was such and such a value three years ago and now it worth 25% to 50% less. I would sure hate to be off that much on an original appraisal. Do you think skippie ever thinks about this?
