There is no "one size fits all" when it comes to a regulatory compliant appraisal program, but good appraisal programs share some common traits. This webinar examines alternatives and best practices for appraisal programs, all of which balance production enhancement and risk mitigation. Regulatory compliance starts with a reasoned and comprehensive appraisal program, which flows through to policy and procedures into every day practice in the bank.

Why Should you Attend
As per the Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines, a financial institution's appraisal program must incorporate eight key components of its appraisal function. A bank must thus have a comprehension of the eight regulatory requirements, plus an understanding of how they can be incorporated into a codified plan and implemented in accordance with that plan on a day-to-day basis. If your bank has not gained that understanding and taken those specific steps, this webinar will be a useful tool in starting that process.

Financial institutions make loans of all sizes. Collateral is obtained to provide the institution with some form of repayment in the event of borrower default. As such, collateralized loans are considered to have lower risk than unsecured loans and longer amortization periods are made available when long-lasting real estate collateral is provided. But just having collateral does not necessarily ensure lower risk for the institution. Real estate values shift, due to market forces and specific property issues. Thus, bank regulators have embedded the valuation process within all real estate loan production. Further, institutions are mandated to install processes and personnel that can identify risk levels and effectively manage the appraisal program with greater due diligence when risk is higher. But real estate appraising is a different industry than banking, so institutions often face a steep learning curve in efforts to comply with appraisal regulations. This webinar provides introductory information for banks and credit unions to work toward meeting the regulator's appraisal program requirements.
