Appraisal Compliance

Appraisal compliance — it’s been the buzzword for the last decade. With banks required to manage more and more requirements on the same budgets, with the same teams, it’s never been more crucial for financial institutions to establish a process that works correctly from the get-go.

But before you can establish a foolproof process, there are a few questions that you need to ask yourself. After all, how can you prepare for something you don’t know the details about? For instance, what is a USPAP? Why is it important for non-appraisers? And how will valuation independence affect you moving forward?

To help you prepare for the inevitable, we’ve created a new webinar series with our very own compliance director, Andy Reisser. With over 15 years of experience as a certified residential appraiser, his experience in managing appraisal compliance is top-notch, and he is uniquely qualified to outline the intricate details of both the USPAP and valuation independence to provide your financial institution with the insights you need to make better decisions for your bank or credit union.
