So this AMC that I do business with regularly lets it slip out that the borrower thinks his property is worth two million. The address alone tells me no way because it is not oceanfront. But maybe it's got a "killer" ocean view. So during the phone inverview I ask if it has an ocean view. She say it has a great view.

Well there is a peak of the ocean through the trees but somehow I don't think the ocean will be the first thing on a buyers mind.

Don't worry Greg, that AMC might remove that photo and your comments about that and 'fix' the appraisal for their client and borrower to be able to close the loan with no problems. Oh yeah, they put your digital signature back on that altered appraisal report after they located your digital signature in 'somebody's' digital signature database. You'll never know.....

If you roll up your appraisal, stick it in a tube, and mail it to your client, you would have the dead sea scrolls.

When I was a brand new apprentice one of my fellow sweat-shoppers looked at a house that was in the middle of a cemetary. It was the office for the cemetary. There was a crematorium in the kitchen. I think they gave it back and told the lender to get a commercial appraisal. The mentor tried to use it as an example of external obsolecence. I was not sure of how much of the cemetary was to be included. From what I heard, there were graves right up to the front porch.

We used to live on Lakeview Avenue in Madison. As the street name implies, our house had a view of the lake.


In the winter.


If you stood on the roof.


It was a bungalow. :new_smile-l:
