Be sure to check your state’s requirements, as they vary widely among the states.
This is the first one I know of. Maybe they have been reading my free emails where I suggest this is the only solution to the appraiser shortage, now and in the future, that can start immediately. FYI, Red Sky is owned/affilated with U.S. Bank
Excerpts from an email (Appraiser Partner News) sent to appraisers on its panel June 11, 2015
Supervisory Appraiser Change
Upon review, Red Sky Risk Services, LLC has refined its expectations regarding the involvement of appraiser trainees. Important to note, the following change DOES NOT override specific state statute(s) or appraiser training requirements.
Effective immediately, Red Sky is no longer requiring supervisory appraisers to be physically present with trainee appraisers at all subject property inspections and driving comparable sales.
My comment: There is a short additional list of specific requirements. But, they are nothing new – Supervisor to review report, responsible for report, etc.
