Thank you once again for assisting us with the National Appraisal Survey. It is important to the entire profession that your voice is heard. This survey is widely read by regulators, lenders, AMCs and vendors. Your feedback is especially important to the Allterra Group team. Understanding what the emerging issues are helps us develop webinars and educational opportunities that you deem important.
There is no activity that we do at Allterra Group that does not touch appraisers. The health and welfare of the appraisal profession is of utmost importance to us. We want to thank the appraisal professionals who took the time to complete our survey and provide us valuable feedback.
A few highlights from the 2016 survey results. Appraisal fraud is considered to be the most pressing issue facing appraisers today. The opinion on whether or not new appraisal forms would be helpful is pretty much split down the middle and most agree that the industry does not need more regulation and enforcement.
I think we know all too well that the appraisal profession has been in a state of perpetual change. Stay tuned for mini surveys or polls throughout the year on emerging issues.
