Appraiser Blacklists

Along with discussions of Customary and Reasonable Fees, the subject of Appraiser Blacklists is most likely near the top of the list of concerns for real property appraisers. Appraiser Active has discussed them previously, and those posts are some of the most widely read on this site.

The folks at Live Valuation Magazine asked me for some comments about blacklists from an appraiser's perspective for their April issue. It's been published and delivered, and is available online. My comments are included at THIS LINK.

Ken Verrett also provided comments from an appraiser's perspective. In addition, the views of a lender and appraisal management company are presented.

I've got a few more things to say on the subject, but would like to hear what you think about the articles and the topic first. You comments are encouraged.
