Recent actions by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to pursue a more digital appraisal process, including the permanent acceptance of desktop appraisals and a focus on eliminating appraisal bias, make it important for everyone involved in the valuation process to stay informed. That’s why we’re addressing the topic at our HW Annual event on Oct. 3-5.
“From modernizing appraisal technology to the government heightening their focus on appraisal bias, there’s no shortage of important and noteworthy topics to unpack in the appraisal space,” Brena Nath, director of HW+ and events, said.
“Appraisal Modernization: What’s the end game?” will be held on Oct. 5. Speakers include Joni Pilgrim, co-founder and CEO of Nationwide Appraisal Network, Mark Walser, president of Incenter Appraisal Management, and John Liss, founder of True Footage. The discussion will focus on federal changes and the impact on lenders, appraisers and appraisal management companies, along with the technological updates that are transforming the appraisal process.
“I’m excited to have key stakeholders in the space to come together and share what key areas you need to be paying attention to and what the future hold for appraisals since this topic isn’t going away,” Nath said.
