FREAB Meeting - April 2 and 3, 2012

The Florida Real Estate Appraisal Board (FREAB) will be meeting in Orlando April 2 and 3, 2012. This will be the first meeting that includes two FREAB members that represent Appraisal Management Companies.

A couple of weeks ago, Governor Rick Scott appointed Evalyn F. (Fran) Oreto to the second AMC position.  At the same time, Governor Scott appointed Michael J. Rogers to a second term, filling one of the State-Certified General Appraiser positions. Fran Oreto had just completed a term as a State-Certified Residential Appraiser member. She served as Chair of the FREAB in 2011, and was elected as Chair for 2012 during the February, 2012 meeting. 

As another March, 2012 appointee, Matthew S. Simmons  will be attending his first meeting as a State-Certified Residential Appraiser member.

Since I will be attending the Probable Cause Panel meeting on Wednesday, April 4th as a past  member of FREAB, I had planned to attend the Monday and Tuesday sessions. Unfortunately, due to assignment deadlines and workload, I won't get a chance to get up to Orlando until Tuesday morning. We'll try to get some photos and an update posted later this week. It should be an interesting meeting.

Consumers pay for their home/property appraisals. But their lending institution

legally owns the appraisal report document. Unless the lender “releases its interest” in

the document, it remains the lending institution’s property.Home Appraisal
