The HBA recently hosted a webinar presented by NAHB and Builder Partnerships entitled “Builders Guide to Appraisals: Obtaining Accurate Valuations on New Homes”. If you were unable to attend, it was an excellent program which provided an overview of appraisal problems and issues encountered by builders and appraisers. As well, the presenters reviewed recent changes in appraisal standards and practices including the fact that use of an Appraisal Management Company is not required. As well, the program clarified that lenders and builders can communicate with appraisers. If you would like to review the presentation slides from the program click here.
