As Alsie35 implies . . . Appraisers are required to describe the listing history, and to analyze the contact, but not to analyze the listing history. You're creating additional work for yourself in order to satisfy some sort of unwarranted concern of absolutely no interest to an Intended User. No conspiracies, no collusion, no harm, no foul...Who cares what the listing price is? Mickey mouse realtor games like this have nothing to do with market value. Why would you care if they switched the list price on the MLS? People can list a home for whatever they want. It means nothing - until it closes title.
Its the closed sales, and the closed sales alone that determine value.
