a bit dated though still highly relevant today.
I think a good lawyer can roast anything an appraiser does.
"Oh, you adjusted for $5,000 for that bathroom?...Where did you get that figure? (If presented with something to back it up)- Is that source reliable? Are you SURE?"
I'd imagine reports are often discredited through classic ad hominem. They don't have to discredit the report, just the appraiser. Oh look- He didn't label the porch in the sketch even though on page 1 of the 1004 he indicated that it's a covered porch. Rookie. This guy clearly doesn't know what he's talking about.
