New HVCC Appraiser Talkback Survey

David Brauner, from Working RE Magazine, has posted a new survey on his Appraiser Talkback blog. Take a look at the post, New HVCC Appraiser Talkback Survey: One Year On, and spend a few minutes letting him know of your experience with the HVCC.

Here's what David has to say:

Editor’s Note: After a year of turmoil since the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) was implemented, we know at least one thing: that you are being heard and that your feedback does make a difference. Don’t give up now. You’ll find the new survey questions about life after HVCC below. It’s up to you to let regulators and lawmakers know what is working and what isn’t. Is the FHA mandate, that appraisers be paid “customary and reasonable fees,” working? Has appraisal quality improved? Should Appraiser Management Companies (AMCs) be regulated? Are you feeling less pressure today to “make a deal work”? Are appraisers hired based on low fees rather than competency?
