Agencies, Fannie Tweak Appraisal Requirements, Access to Data
December 20, 2013
Fannie Mae last week issued an update to its lenders describing the new process that the GSE has implemented to identify and monitor individual appraisers. According to Lender Letter LL-2013-10, Fannie reviews appraisal reports for patterns of discrepancies and inconsistencies. Using the appraisal data that it collects through the Uniform Collateral Data Portal, Fannie said it has developed a process that identifies appraisers whose work displays more egregious issues.
