Also, Oregon and Washington.

Attempting to contract for such large areas means the contract will end up with an AMC. Yep.... gonna get some real quality reviews there!

Last time I saw a solicitation for bids for FHA appraisal reviews, they made it for 1, yes 1, appraiser for all of approximately the southern 1/3 portion of the state of Florida and that 1 appraiser was to do them ALL personally. Residential appraisers don't have the competence for an area that large and Frank G. made that perfectly clear to them.

Doesn't anyone at HUD have any clue regarding Appraisals???? Does anyone there want to get a clue????


Hey HUD, how about picking a couple of the Appraisers from your roster that do the work for a couple of your approved lenders that have a very low foreclosure rate? Contact those Appraisers directly through the individual HOCs and get a real quality review - or - try a couple of your roster appraisers that have been on your roster for at least a couple of years but don't complete very many FHA appraisals. Those are probably the ethical appraisers since the lenders don't use them very often!!!!!! Too simple????

:roll: :twisted:

:2gunfire:

FHA/HUD is constantly shooting themselves in their own feet!

I really don't know.... I guess this MIGHT be better than no reviews.

Most of the FHA review work goes to appraisal companies with minority ownership. They, in turn, hire appraisers in the areas where the reviews are done and pay rather low fees. In our market most of the reviewers were newly licensed appraisers with little experience. The review company was based in Texas. The system isn't the best.

Mike-

Probably the company that contracts for OK. I talked to this guy at his office. It's a little nondescript house south of Dallas, TX. I was bemused by the setup. He told me-we want reviews, but we aren't out to expose appraisers negatively. OH.

I once looked into doing FHA review work, but that didn't last long. Reviews could be all over the place and fees were ridiculous. Oh well, I'm looking into a new career in internet marketing. Wish me luck. :usa: :usa: :usa: :usa:

Greg-

You got em. I drove by that house twice trying to find them.
I was put off by his statement, he wasn't interested in reviews that had any negativity. Then what's the point? Seconding bad work? I know way too much about the OK appraisal biz to second their number hittin', condition overlooking, comp creating work. No thanks.
