AMC New Requirement 2 M. Evans Someone told me that the AMC Joan Trice represents, forget it's name,  wanted a background check. The only time I had a request for my drivers license was as a part of a background check done by a relo company. I was told it was a comfort level for the transferees employers.  These were government employees, ok I can understand a certain amount of concern where the appraiser knows the transferee is FBI and DEA but the Forest Service did make me say "what".  I furnished it for them. No regular AMC gets this kind of information from me.

Tampa, FL Ind Cont 0 P. W I am looking for an Residential independent contractor to add to my business.  We are doing 20-25 appraisal per week with myself and two other appraisers.  The only limit to our volume is appraisers to do the assignments.  Currently my two independent contractors are making between 50k and 80k.I have over 25 years of experience in the market, nearly 20 in the field with about 5 years as a reviewer/analyst for lenders and a GSE.  Our process is streamlined and very technological.  We have office staff that will complete a great deal of the data entry portion of the report allowing the appraiser to focus on comparable selection, inspection and analysis. I might consider the right Trainee.Any candidate must be willing to learn or re-learn the appraisal process so if you are a long time appraiser and set in your ways this may not be the position for you.Independent contractor agreement with client non-compete required.We need actual appraisers, NO QC, NO REVIEWERS.  Send Resume to:

Testing systems 1 R. Lavallee I have not seen anything on this.  I do know that some of the lenders/AMCs are requiring many, many things that are above the requirements.

UAD and Residential Softwares 7 S. Barkalow Carol - I think all the software has some issues - we will get through it eventually. I think ACI users had the most issues - but that could be propaganda put out by other software companies. Regardless, capitalize on your strengths - let the rest go - and keep on keep'n on.

UAD ???? 1 C. Ames, IFA Carol, I had a similar situation, with the same response - what's UAD?Something that I had recommended to chapter members, starting last spring: Take the time to visit local lenders, with the 37-page "Guide," and review some of the UAD basics with lenders, who it seems have been more concerned about the forthcoming changes for them than with the UAD and appraisers. I also suggested they focus on the last few pages, where all the "codes" and C and Q descriptions are located. Of course, I made the (apparently erroneous) extraordinary assumption that the large lenders would be aware of the UAD and would ensure their staffs would be trained. In my case, the appraisal was for Wells Fargo, and the person ordering the appraisal had no idea how to respond to the UAD

Customary and Reasonable 4 C. Ames, IFA Just to let you know I won't do a residential appraisal in San Diego below my typical fee and turn-time. That should be good news for the appraisers who want to go after any order.

single family ground lease 0 J. Fletcher I am looking for some input on single family residential lots that are under ground lease. What type of discount rate would be reasonable, and how can I relate these to multi-family or commercial based ground leases? These lots are part of a larger, gated golf community development, it seems to be new type of development here in Ontario, but I wonder if this if more common practice along the east coast of Arizona? Thanks. Jason Fletcher Appraisal Institute of Canada Candidate member London, Ontario, Canada
