Comment on Financial Reform Implementation


October 6, 2010

To Whom It May Concern,
I am sure you have heard from numerous parties during your rule drafting process.

I came across a blog from a Mortgage Banker in Florida that is a prime example of how the appraisal process and the "value" of the appraisal as a collateral tool as part of the lending process.

An excerpt from the blog states the following:
"SORRY, WE CANT CLOSE BECAUSE THE APPRAISER FROM THE AMC GAVE US A VALUE THAT IS MUCH LESS THAN NEEDED!"

Bankers/Brokers are not looking for accurate valuations, they are looking for "values that are NEEDED" to close a deal. Isn't that what got us in trouble in the first place?
