The Practical Aspects of How Attorneys and Appraisers Interact - I

Appraisers have opportunities to work on a assignments other than for lenders, but their unfamiliarity with the expectations of attorneys and private assignments is a frequent stumbling block.
Eugene Nigro, an established probate and divorce attorney, will help demystify the process of appraisers working with attorneys in the engagement and completion of assignments. He will discuss when expert testimony may be required, provide a trial outline used for preparation, and describe the qualifications and experience attorneys look for when engaging an appraiser.

Appraising in a COVID Driven Market
The demand for housing outside urban cores is driving prices through the stratosphere as buyers compete with each other in pursuit of a house that brings space for remote working and amenities for families. 
Appraising in a COVID Driven Market will explore appraisal issues emerging as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The panelists will delve into buyer and seller motivations, the valuation challenges of a market short in supply and high in demand, whether there is a new way to look at adjustments, and what lenders think about your reports.
