+ 02-05-2019 - ICAP Joins 29 State Appraisal Organizations in Opposing an Increase in the Appraisal Threshold

The NPRM attempts to justify increased use of evaluations as a cheaper-faster means of ordering valuations. Such a justification disregards the Dodd-Frank Act's consumer protection mandates and puts at risk the very low-income and first-time buyers who most deserve the informational benefits and USPAP assurances that appraisals provide.  Moreover, the agencies' efforts to reduce the number of required appraisals is part of a misguided effort to deal with a claimed appraiser shortage by reducing appraisal demand. Such efforts could more appropriately be focused on agency outreach to the lender and appraiser communities to better understand potential concerns over cost and time for home valuations.

+ 02-05-2019 - Professional Appraisal Organizations Oppose The Appraisal Threshold Increase

The American Society of Appraisers, Appraisal Institute, American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers MBREA|, The Association for Valuation Professionals, American Guild of Appraisers, OPEIU, AFL-CIO, and RICS oppose an Increase in the Appraisal Threshold. The letter states that the proposal puts regulatory relief ahead of consumer protection or safety and soundness.

+ 02-05-2019 - NAR Opposes an Increase In The Appraisal Threshold Without Consideration For Specific Real Estate Markets

NAR agrees that the current appraisal threshold should be evaluated but disagrees with the proposed broad increase to the appraisal threshold without consideration for specific real estate markets.  NAR proposes that the Agencies create a policy in which the appraisal threshold level is set at 50 percent of the Government Sponsored Entities (GSE) conforming loan limits for each county.

+ 12-24-2018 - ICAP signed a letter requesting a public hearing

ICAP signed a letter requesting a public hearing regarding increase the threshold level at or below which appraisals would not be required for residential real estate-related transactions from $250,000 to $400,000.  The letter states the history surrounding the question of the residential appraisal threshold compels a public hearing to be held for the benefit of both regulators and impacted stakeholders.

+ 12-16-2018 - The Appraisal Foundation strongly encourages not to increase the appraisal threshold

The Appraisal Foundation believes that increasing the appraisal threshold level would negatively affect safety and soundness in real estate lending practices. It would likely prompt many financial institutions to significantly reduce attention to collateral risk management. This position is supported by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) report1 in January 2012, where no support was found to raise the current threshold amount.
