Why is the appraiser always the one who is assumed to be wrong?

Anytime any information about the subject or comps differs from the unnamed "Public Records" it is the appraiser who is asked to change the report to match what is incorrect.

I'll drink to that my friend! :beer:

Sadly I don't know the answer. But I agree, I get requests asking for "clarification" or whatever to "explain" the difference

The worst is when it's in the report already:mad2:

Well, *somebody* needs to be the Goat.
Bank refuses, U/W takes no responsibility
Attorney too slippery, only gets your goat
Title Company says; This here paperwork is what we're willing to insure on.
Who else is left ?

No one likes referees or umpires, yet, at every level of sports, there they are. if you go on their forums, they will answer your questions directly. I always wondered about why Shortstops didn't have to touch second base on a double play, and was told its because the players are paid millions and they don't want the players injured.

I don't get that. First, if I see a significant discrepancy, I will mention it in the report. On the times an underwriter sees a discrepancy, they always ask that I comment as to why I am different from public records and IF I am wrong, to correct it. I have never been told I was wrong

A polite request for clarification would be nice, but usually it is "Appraiser to correct/change" whatever to match some anonymous "public records" source. And do it within 2/4/24 hours or else.
