Home Appraisals

An appraisal is an opinion of value.

Mortgage lenders are no longer allowed to speak to appraisers regarding the value of the property. Appraiser independence is the law under Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform.

There are certain circumstances where a broker can contact & talk to the appraiser about a mortgage loan appraisal when they have questions or concerns. ... it does not allow a full blown “conversation” or “discussion” with the appraiser however.

When an appraisal is used to obtain an opinion of value of a property for loan purposes, federal regulation requires King Financial (the lender) or our agent to place an appraisal order.
