Another ‘Bad’ Word to Avoid!
To lighten the load somewhat from discussions about current highly restrictive language use in appraisal reports that tends to circumvent actual reality and truth – which can positively or adversely impact property market value, replaced with only generic, non-offensive words, I present this cartoon.
It’s another word to avoid using:
Obfuscation of real and accurate market data using correct written descriptions, replaced with wokeism to foster an unworkable ideological agenda, is one reason why skilled appraisers are shifting their work to non-mortgage lending clients who actually want to understand the true reality of regional and neighborhood areas, and how market values are affected.
Appraisers who work for such clients are respected, and are valued positively. This is the exact opposite of what the mortgage lending arena has become for appraisers who only work in that space.
Plus, fees for non-mortgage lending work are much better than the beat down mortgage lending appraisers endure. This assumes that the appraiser does not incorporate the low pay mentality when engaging with private clients. If you are experienced and have higher level skills, don’t sell yourself short.
