In the normal course of the marketplace, a consumer will purchase a product or service and the retailer has the right to set a price. There is virtually no negotiation on price between the retailer and the consumer. The real estate marketplace operates in a significantly different manner with the seller setting a price. The buyer and seller negotiate and reach agreement on price.
Why should the parties to the negotiated agreement bring in the third party (appraiser) to independently and impartially prepare a written statement expressing an opinion of defined value?
Secondly and equally important to this discussion (in response to the 2008-2009 mortgage crises), new appraisal rules-The Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) went into effect. The appraisal rules have been evolving since the mortgage mess of 2006-2008 and now the HVCC has been superseded on July 10, 2010 with the passage of the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. What has been the long term impact of on-going changes to the appraisal process?
As part of this discussion thread, you are required to contact a local appraisal company to determine the impact of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act on the home buying process. In your discussion with a licensed appraiser, ask questions as to the impact of Dodd-Frank Act have had on their career field. In addition, ask what are the educational and licensing requirements to become a licensed appraiser in their of record state; be aware that each of the 50 states and all US Territories has state specific licensing requirements.
