AllRegs Academy’s Instructor-Led Online Courses offer you the opportunity to learn from industry-recognized instructors from the comfort of your office.
The appraisal is an essential part of the mortgage process, as it assigns value to the home being purchased. But with the various types of appraisal reports and an ever-changing market, appraisals have become more difficult to evaluate when making loan decisions.
AllRegs Academy’s Collateral Analysis: Reviewing Appraisals provides an in-depth overview of the appraisal and the steps taken in developing an estimation of value. It is designed for students new to the appraisal review process. The target audience would include processors, junior underwriters, quality control staff, and anyone who wants to better understand the appraisal review process when making loan decisions.
Participants will be introduced to commonly used terms and definitions, requirements set by USPAP, that effect the responsibility of the appraiser, to underwriting guidelines set by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, FHA and VA, that will affect underwriting decisions. In addition, each section and line item of appraisal forms, used for all loan types and the applicable addendums, will be covered in detail.
By the end of the course students will have a clear understanding of how the value of property is determined, what should be expected from the appraiser and, the ability to recognize inconsistencies or red flags as they relate to the determination of value.
Classes consist of four 90-minute live sessions with instructors delivered through the WebEx conferencing platform.

What do you hope your students learn from this course? In every class I teach, I hope my students leave with a thorough knowledge of the subject I'm teaching in addition to knowing what resources are there for them to find the answers to things they might not know or run into later. For FHA, I want them to be able to go into a FHA file and be able to tell if it meets FHA guidelines. For VA, the same thing, want them to know if the loan meets the VA guidelines which are cumbersome to say the least! If it's a collateral analysis class, I hope that I focus on the main issues on the URAR and show them how to determine if the appraisal is a good one.

What do you hope your students learn from this course? I hope to provide a slightly different view point on the topic. I have been the salesman trying to get underwriting to approve a deal, and I have been the underwriter listening to the salesman’s plea to approve the deal. I hope to share my well-rounded perspective with the students.
