I just received a call from the client stating the underwriter wants the appraiser to "correct" the room count stated in the report as she counts 8 rooms instead of 9......I am guessing the underwriter looked at the sketch exhibit and counted the rooms?!! (Wish all underwriters were this thorough...especially when it comes to reading comments!!).

I looked over the report and still counted 9, (could even be 10 if you wanted to count the very large recreation room as two rooms).

OK, maybe it is the labels I put on the rooms which led to the confusion in room count..but this is a new underwriter request for me!

I wrote an addendum stating the reasoning for my room count of 9 and a remark, "Though the underwriter may interpret the room count of the subject to be 8 rooms, the difference in interpretation of the number of rooms provided by the subject residence is irrelevant to the opinion of value stated in the report."

Hope that remark doesn't sound too :roll:

Now I may move on to more pressing matters.
