Had a loan officer send this to me, he said that he found it in this month's issue of Loan Officer Magazine:

"Sidebar - The Lighter Side Of A Real Estate Appraisal

An appraiser is one who compiles and analyzes voluminous data of problematical accuracy from sources of dubious veracity and derives therefrom a numerical quantification of unquestionable necessity, analogous to a nebulous and euphemistic concept representational of value commensurate with ambient configurations of the open market and promulgates thereby a precise written declamation which delineates his observations, deliberations and conclusions all done while he feigns absolute ignorance of the avaricious machinations of Buyers, Sellers, Brokers and Lenders, compensated only by that penurious stipend known as the professional fee."

I think that I will start writing my all reports in this type of format/language. :D :D

The loan officer that wrote that is likely a failed attorney. Or he's trying to pass the bar exam for the 100th time. What a loser!

Truth aside... anyone who writes this much confusing jargon is up to no good. Or has a hidden agenda.

Thanks Ann!

THAT explains it... :p the 'several years ago' reference anyway... <_<

...Had the wag who penned that little dilly of a definition been up to-date he'd undoubtedly have included some greater reference to the slings and arrows of outraged 'all parties concerned'

when the appraisal "failed to meet the client/borrower's needs :rolleyes:
