Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are leading agencies in the nation’s housing finance system, and as such, they continually undertake efforts to improve risk management activities, including in real estate appraisal. Recently, we have seen the agencies turn to appraisal information in developing quality assurance systems relating to collateral risk. These systems are now fully operational and fully integrated with mortgage loan seller operations. The agencies recently announced plans to waive appraisals in certain low risk loan situations, yet appraisals are still very much a part of the agencies’ plans moving forward.
This webinar will help professional appraisers understand the short and long term goals of the agencies relative to appraisals. Participants will hear the latest findings of quality assurance programs and better understand how appraisers can improve their performance. The agencies will also outline their respective appraisal waiver policies and help appraisers understand what steps they can take to continue providing value added services to end users and investors.
