Earlier this morning I had the opportunity to talk with a number of associates during their weekly sales meeting at one of the local Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate offices. Of course, the topic of discussion was appraisals. My invitation was due to their increasing frustration with the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC), their experiences with appraisers devoid of geographic competence, and their questions about GSE "guidelines".

We talked about all of the above, but spent most of our time working on HVCC Myths and the efforts of the National Association of Realtors to seek a moratorium of the HVCC and work on a better solution to the problems it was intended to correct. Although some written material was provided, I promised to add links to those documents along with others to information that might be useful.

For quick reference, everything added here is also in the LINKS section along the left side of the page.

Let me know if you run across other tools that may benefit real estate professionals doing their best to deal with the HVCC.
