Are you interested in the latest information about virtual inspections and accounting-related coronavirus topics?
The Appraisal Institute, as part of its recently created weekly AI Answers program, will offer a Facebook Live session at noon CDT April 29. Adam Johnston, SRA, AI-RRS, of Genworth Mortgage Insurance, will discuss strengths and weaknesses of residential appraisal virtual inspection applications, and Justin Glasser, MAI, of Cushman & Wakefield Valuation and Advisory, will address impairment accounting considerations.
These one-hour sessions are scheduled to continue at noon CDT on Wednesdays until further notice, covering current valuation-related topics.
While this discussion should be very interesting, you also can hear two recently recorded Facebook Live sessions from the Appraisal Institute.
The organization’s April 22 Facebook Live session tackled the latest issues surrounding COVID-19 and the valuation profession. AI Director of Government and External Relations Bill Garber was joined by Scott Reuter, chief appraiser at Freddie Mac, to cover initial feedback on exterior-only and desktop appraisal flexibilities. The session also provided the latest information about states’ essential work orders from AI’s Scott DiBiasio, manager, state and industry affairs.
The Appraisal Institute also hosted an April 15 Facebook Live session, where experts discussed the federal agencies’ short-term policy allowing banks to defer completion of appraisals for up to 120 days.
Participating in the Facebook Live session were three bank appraisers:
- Doug Potts, MAI, AI-GRS;
- Melanie Sieger, MAI, AI-GRS; and
- Justin Slack, MAI, SRA, AI-GRS, AI-RRS.
