At this point I am too tired to post my response. After a good nights sleep though I may be able to have the strength to give a decent response. How stupid can these people really be? Ugggggh!!!!!

I see it now. This guy:

"Everyone wants a higher appraisal it means less money down for the buyers". What???

Getting sick and tired of ignorance!

is the one who needs to be educated. Apparently he never heard of the Realtor shuffle where a high appraisal is asked for, the sales price is raised and the extra money is kicked back to the buyer for closing costs resulting in LESS MONEY DOWN.

Ah yes...I forgot to mention that scam. It will be interesting to see the responses considering their general disdain for appraisers. I think my post was not too aggressive, but I hoped to pick their tiny brains out of curiosity.

Why waste your breath? They have only one mindset and it is that appraisers are an impediment to their deals. You can't educate them, you can't reason with them and you sure can't change them. Kind of like pond scum.......you can't really clean it up and it just keeps proliferating. Leave them to their rantings and go chill - you'll feel better:mellow:

Pretty unbelievable the naivity of some of the comments ......what was interesting was the observation that MB and LOs appear to be suffering in full measure within the current market.

Last week I posted a thread there and tried to start a constructive discussion but to no avail. It ended up as all appraiser discussions there do; WE WANT FREE COMP CHECKS AND PRE-DETERMINED VALUES!

I was hoping the unethical had begun to be culled from their ranks but I am afraid it will take much more time for that if it is even possible at all.

It is a rough and crude bunch as a whole although there a few who distinguish themselves as above the rest. I had avoided all broker work for many years but it does seem that there are a very, very, very limited few who want things to be ethical and correct.

Rather than wallow in the mud with them I would hope my appraiser colleagues would monitor their threads and interject some guidance to them in an elevated and articulate manner and maybe they will pick up the hint that were are not an instrument to be bent and manipulated but professionals who operate under a set group of standards and ethics.

One of the things they clearly lack is an understanding of the role of the appraiser and the standards by which we operate. Some truly want to understand while others do not care. All we can do is appeal to the better ones and hope their numbers increase in the future.

BTW, Any effort to license these guys nationally must include a mandatory USPAP course and include them in any enforcement of it. Many have no clue about it ad see many of their unethical and illegal actions as the normal course of business.
