The new forms label the selection in the "Inventory Analysis" and Median Sale & List Price" section as "Comparable Sales". Based on USPAP and the reporting requirements, the appraiser must view the comparables from the street. If they don't then a violation of USPAP has occurred. Based on my interpretation this may require significant drive time if your selection of comparables in each monthly category is substantial. You could have 10-30 Comparable sales in each of the three monthly segments. This may require driving by 30-90 properties which in turn may require extended hours in an effort to view all of the comparable sales. Turn times would have to be discarded in an effort to complete each report. In addition, photos may be necessary which would load up a report with unnecessary file information. I realize that this might be contrived; however, it is a realistic concern for those who wish to be USPAP compliant. I have heard that REL's Valuation has utilized a form similar to this; although, I do not know how successful it has been. I have been thinking about sending a letter off to each of the States Appraisal Boards regarding this concern.
