How to Support and Prove Your Adjustments (7 Hours)
by Richard Hagar, SRA

Do you have the proper support for your adjustments?

Stop taking the same old CE courses and learn proven adjustment methods with instructor Richard Hagar, SRA. Fannie Mae states that the number one reason appraisals are flagged is the “use of adjustments that do not reflect market reaction.” Stay out of trouble with Fannie Mae, your state board and your AMC/lender clients with solid, supportable adjustments.  Up your game, avoid time-consuming callbacks and earn approved CE today!
