We’ve often heard from Appraisers and Brokers who question what benefit their various memberships really provide them? We have just completed an engagement with the Southwest Indiana Association of REALTORS which illustrates one of the most tangible benefits we’ve encountered- FREE Continuing Education!
Over the last couple days, the SWIAR provided 14 hours of continuing education, as well as a delicious lunch, to all interested members. This offering was met with such enthusiasm, the Association has decided to host a similar event on February 22nd and 23rd, 2018- both the "2018/2019 USPAP Update" and "Litigation Appraising" will be offered over the course of these two days. If you are a member of the Southwest Indiana Association of REALTORS, stay tuned for details about this valuable offer!


 Is your office or organization interested in offering this amazing benefit? We are happy to bring our courses to you. Just give us a call to discuss specifics at 317-610-6689.

Industry News:
A recent letter addressed to both the Chairman and ranking member of the “Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs” detailed the appraiser industry’s concern with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac issuing appraisal waivers.  Thirty-six professional groups and agencies signed the petition asking the Senate Committee to halt the waivers until the sponsoring organizations can “demonstrate that the proposed program does not harm the consumer, is properly monitored, and integrates proper safeguards to prevent fraud.”
