The Small Business Administration issued revised guidance March 26 stating that an appraisal may be needed to evaluate the creditworthiness of commercial real estate loans below $500,000. New legislation that aligned SBA regulations with those from the federal bank regulatory agencies eliminated the appraisal requirement for commercial loans below the half-million-dollar threshold.

+ 02-05-2019 - ICAP Joins 29 State Appraisal Organizations in Opposing an Increase in the Appraisal Threshold

The NPRM attempts to justify increased use of evaluations as a cheaper-faster means of ordering valuations. Such a justification disregards the Dodd-Frank Act's consumer protection mandates and puts at risk the very low-income and first-time buyers who most deserve the informational benefits and USPAP assurances that appraisals provide.  Moreover, the agencies' efforts to reduce the number of required appraisals is part of a misguided effort to deal with a claimed appraiser shortage by reducing appraisal demand. Such efforts could more appropriately be focused on agency outreach to the lender and appraiser communities to better understand potential concerns over cost and time for home valuations.

+ 02-05-2019 - Professional Appraisal Organizations Oppose The Appraisal Threshold Increase

The American Society of Appraisers, Appraisal Institute, American Society of Farm Managers and Rural Appraisers MBREA|, The Association for Valuation Professionals, American Guild of Appraisers, OPEIU, AFL-CIO, and RICS oppose an Increase in the Appraisal Threshold. The letter states that the proposal puts regulatory relief ahead of consumer protection or safety and soundness.
