I have been getting a large number of field reviews since the first of the year and after reviewing these appraisals I can see why. 95% of every single one of them was literally crap. Still coming in with the numbers way over market. Appraisers are just not learning. Got one in today that the appraiser came right in with the sales price of $220,000 and the house was in less than average condition. He ignored a sale only 3 doors down that closed less than a month ago at $200,000 which was in better condition and had a superior location. I found others in the neighborhood that substantiaed my opinion of the property and no sales over $210,000 which were larger and in better condition. I am urging and even begging lenders to turn these people in to the state. We need to do this to get rid of these people once and for all. I am hearing the same thing from other appraisers I know. Its not an isolated appraisal. Its out of control.
