Comment on Concessions – When & How Much to Adjust by Small town Guy

Appraisers Blog

Utter and complete BS. Common sense- a house is listed for $400,000. On the market a normal DOM. Goes under contract for $400,000 with no concessions. Two weeks later, $3500 in concessions made to keep the deal going. No change in sale price. It does NOT require adjustment. All these “national experts” see are stats and not real life. I refuse to make an adjustment based on a GSE “policy” instead of real life.

In reply to Bill. Agreed. Lenders using alleged “bias” as rationalization for getting rid of human appraisers. Lenders can make more money without appraisers.

Comment on Security Bars Removal Law Debunks Alleged Racial Discrimination by Mary Cummins

Appraisers Blog

In reply to Pray Hard. Agreed. I’ve had borrowers tell me “the lender said it’ll easily appraise for xxx.” Lenders do that to suck in borrowers so the lender/agent can make money. Then they get the appraisal at market value and lender blames the appraiser for “coming in low.” They assume borrower is now invested with credit inquiry, time, fees, probably needs the deal and will just accept the actual loan and terms.
