Can somebody help me get this clear in my head? I'm doing a relocation appraisal, it may not even matter what its called (since its not a federally-related transaction). Anyway, here's the scenario. Client requests a "Limited" appraisal (no cost approach wanted). Home is less than 6 months old. My understanding is that the cost approach should be done and kept in the file, even though the client doesn't want it addressed in the appraisal report. If, on the other hand, the home were 20 years old, the cost approach would not be appropriate in my opinion; therefore, this is a "Complete" appraisal. The cost approach would not need to appear in the file or in the report, in this instance. The cost approach would not be typically applied in this instance, so the Departure Provision is not invoked. Is this correct?
