What is the deal with comp photos? My client states no MLS photos. Fine. However, they never stated it had to be same time as the effective date of appraisal. Is it assumed it is? I have data base of comp photos and I like to reuse them. The lender would never know except if the weather condition is different from my appraisal date. Sometimes, if the comp is not too far, I retake the photo but I don't really want to. Has any appraisal been called out for comp photos not being same time as appraisal date?
