September 9, which is next tuesday HUD/FHA has cordially invited me to attend a HUD Sponsored Appraiser meeting. This meeting will provide me the opportunity to meet the HUD staff here in Georgia. It will be a 3 hour meeting and the agenda includes reviewing the appraisal and dicussion of common errors and deficiencies. VC forms will also be covered and then a Q&A session will take place. ANYONE WITH ?'S UNANSWERED CAN GET THE ANSWER STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH Just post your ?'s and I will print them and take them with me to the meeting and ask every last one. (time permitted.)

That's amazing. There hasn't been a HUD staff/appraiser meeting around here since the mid 80's.

I don't do FHA appraisals but was thinking of starting so I just attended a similar FHA meeting last week put on by the appropriate HOC. I left with the same confusion that I entered with. The top HUD people couldn't agree on answers on some of the simplest questions that the audience had. There were many very experienced FHA appraisers in the audience and they coulnd't agree amont themselves what the proper procedures were for many things.

I took a few FHA classes when they started all of this homebuyer plan stuff a number of years ago. I decided then to not get into it because the 4150 (?) had so many typos in it. Half the appraisers said follow it with its mistakes, and the other half said to do what you think it was suppose to say. Anyway, it will be interesting to see what your response it to the meeting you are going to.

Please ask them how large an opening to a crawl space must be. They say 18" is recommended. What is required?
Thanks,
Mike Seward

Every year the on first weekend of March the Denver HOC holds a training/update seminar in Houston along with FANNIE MAE. It's the only event I know of where both of these major players in the mortgage finance industry come together to give information and answer appraiser's questions. The seminar is sponsored by the Texas Gulf Coast Chapter of the National Association of Master Appraisers, and also counts for 6 hours of Appraiser Continuing Education with the Texas Appraiser Licence and Certification Board. It's always a great seminar, but seating is limited to 100. The next one will be March 4, 2004 - registration information will be posted on the forum closer to the date of the event.
