Design (Style)
The appraiser should enter an appropriate architectural design (style) type descriptor that
best describes the subject property. Valid descriptions include, but are not limited to,
‘Colonial,’ ‘Rambler,’ ‘Georgian,’ ‘Farmhouse’. Do not use descriptors such as ‘brick,’
‘2 stories,’ ‘average,’ ‘conventional,’ or ‘typical’ as these are not architectural styles.
Design style names may vary by locality. The appraiser should report the name of the
design style that is applicable within the local market area.
You forgot to embolden the part about not using descriptors such as 2 stories

Oops....did I forget to do that?


Doesn't matter. If a style has a market name that is the same as a descriptive, it doesn't conflict with that sentence because your not reporting it as a descriptive, rather you are reporting the name of the
design style that is applicable within the local market area.

In deciding if your work product will pass through the portal or not, ask yourself, "What would Hal do." (Hal-2001 Space Odyssey)

VA and FHA do not go through "the portal", thus the point of my original question...

I have to agree. Just because a market buyer says "I want a 2-story" doesn't mean they don't differentiate among DESIGN. Even before UAD, I would scratch my head doing reviews when someone put "2 story" for design. We have 2 story ranches, 2 story territorials, 2 story Sears Craftsman Bungalows, 2 story Victorians, 2 story Santa Fes (what's the plural of that? Santa Fi?), etc...and you know what, the market perceive a difference in the design even if the typical market buy refers to it initially as a 2-story: that reference by a buyer only means "when you show us houses, don't show us anything less than 2 stories, regardless of design."

If there is a particular design that was unique that was truly known by the market, then you would state that style. Most 2 stories are eclectic and are known as a "2 story"
