Just sent out the last appraisal for the year (a Fannie Mae foreclosure). That puts me 5.5% under what I did last year, and I can live with that. Not a bad year despite the loss of my Secretary to old age (see Avatar). Here's hoping that 2008 will be another good year for all of us, despite what the doomsdayers might say. Maybe lenders will see the value of an honest appraisal. Maybe state boards will start discipling those in our profession who have helped fuel the current mortgage industry's crisis. Maybe crooked AMC's that steal fees will wither and die. Maybe enough good appraisers can weather what storms may come, and enjoy a prosperous new year. I wish good health and happiness to all on the Forum, and I thank you all for invaluable insight and help. See you next year.
