If I appraise an REO property and it seems like a good deal can I then place an offer for the property? Is this considered insider trading? Is there a conflict of interest here? Does anyone own an investment company and also appraiser on this forum that can tell me a legal way of going about this. The increasing demands and lesser fees on our profession is forcing me to go back to my investment roots which is fine by me (less work). Any suggestions on going about this legally are greatly appreciated.
