[SS LO] Appraisals
Because the collateral for a mortgage loan is the subject property, the appraised value of the property is an important consideration in loan approval. The lender must have a high level of confidence in the documentation presented by the appraiser. It is essential for appraisals to be accurate, and overvaluation is a significant problem in the industry.
This course provides an overview of the appraisal process, including a look at the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report and the various approaches used by appraisers in evaluating property. In addition, this course briefly explores additional appraisal requirements for higher-priced mortgage loans.
