February Series
Part 1: Keeping Off Fannie Mae’s New Appraiser “Blacklist” 

On-Demand: Available Now
This Webinar provides an overview of how Fannie’s AQM/CU system works, what it reports to lenders, what it takes to get an appraiser on the “bad boy” list, and how you can stay off it.

Part 2: Fannie Mae’s AQM and How to Stay Out of Trouble
On-Demand: Available Now
Fannie Mae is ramping up AQM which means increasing numbers of warning letters are being sent to appraisers for incorrectly or inconsistently applying Quality and Condition (Q&C) ratings across their appraisal reports. Richard Hagar shows appraisers how to navigate Fannie’s Q&C rating system and stay out of trouble with state boards and Fannie Mae.

Fannie Mae has identified 18 major concerns, or “deadly sins,” related to appraisals including failures related to Quality and Condition. Understanding the issues will help appraisers avoid being blacklisted by lenders and Fannie Mae. In this webinar, Hagar takes appraisers, step by step, through the issues and shows how to properly classify Quality and Condition ratings. Each attendee will receive a copy of the “deadly sins” plus photographic examples of homes in each of the different Quality and Condition ratings.

March Series
How to Support and Prove Your Adjustments

Part 1: March 5th, 10 – 12 p.m. PST
Part 2: March 12th, 10 – 12 p.m. PST
Updated and expanded, Hagar shows you how to properly support your adjustments- the foundation of good appraising! Regulations state that appraisal adjustments cannot be based upon an appraiser’s opinion. Failure to provide proper proof and analysis to support your adjustments means a rough road ahead: state board complaints, panel removal, lawsuits, even license revocation. Fannie Mae cites “the use of adjustments that do not reflect market reaction” as the number one reason an appraiser can be “blacklisted.” This training is critical in helping appraisers avoid catastrophic appraisal failures.
