HVCC Update - No AMC Work for Appraiser Active

It's been quite a while since the last post. Believe it or not, the reason is the stack of work accumulating on my desk and the floor surrounding it. Although I've collected plenty of links to stories about the HVCC, the disastrous effect it's having on real estate transactions and established professional relationships, business must come first. Especially when the fees and report delivery dates are individually negotiated.

There are a number of petitions concerning the HVCC floating around, along with some very worthwhile efforts. Time and workload has not permitted checking all of them out, but I'll get around to it. However, one of the efforts is being spearheaded by Brian Davis over at Appraisal Scoop. The blog is probably on your reading list (it's on mine!), but just in case you have not visited, go on over, read and participate in Brian's "SPEAK UP! on the HVCC's Unintended Consequences" initiative.

For the past two weeks I've been collecting my own stories form Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Borrowers and Sellers. After a get a few of these appraisals out the door, I've got a few things to write. Until then.....
