Trying to Catch Up

It's been over a month since posting. Please do not take that as an indication nothing is going on; things are hopping! Over the past 30+ days, I've attended the meetings of the National Association of REALTORS® and NAR Appraisal Committee in New Orleans, finished up a big appraisal review assignment for a potential class action lawsuit, completed a few single family and condominium appraisals, and put a dent into examining 52 cases for the Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board's Probable Cause Panel.

The picture with this post shows what 52 cases looks like.

Every day, I wake up hoping to have some time to make a few comments here, and post some information. The time flys by. Although I'm still up to my eyeballs in files and have two appraisals due tomorrow before noon, I did some updating to the site by adding a few links to section on the left of this page.

Over there you will find a link to the Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines released by the
Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Treasury (OCC); Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB); Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC); Office of Thrift Supervision, Treasury (OTS); and National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). I also added a link to Fannie and Freddie's Appraiser Independence Guidelines, and the "redlined" version of TITLE XI as amended by the Dodd - Frank Act.

For your reading pleasure, the ASC produced "red lined" version of Title XI is reproduced after the jump.

As soon as the FREAB Probable Cause Panel meeting is over, I hope to provide an update of some of the goings on during the NAR Appraisal Committee meeting and NAR Board of Directors. Some good things for appraiser members of NAR are coming up.

Here is the ASC take of the effect of Dodd - Frank on Title XI of FIRREA:

Title XI as Amended by the Dodd-Frank Reform Act

Welcome back. Any news from the NAR appraisal committee?

Frank Gregoire said...

Yes, I have news. After a little more space and breathing room, I'll find some time to make the post. It's pretty good news.
