Virginia Beach Home Loans: Appraisal Woes.

Appraisal Woes.

I am having trouble with an appraiser. I have sent him a reasonable amount of business recently so I am not sure why I am having so much difficulty in dealing with him. The reason I began using him was because of his "24 hour turn around time". The first appraisal that I sent out to him was back same day.

Now he has seen a property for me on Monday last week which makes it a week today. My borrower has been calling me because we were suppose to get this deal done in 1 week. The lender that I am going to with this is on a 4 day turn time for conditions.

My borrower called me about 2 hours ago, he said that he called the appraiser up and the appriaser told him that he already sent out the appraisal. I know they have my email address correct because I have recieved numerous reports from them before.

I left a message saying that my borrower just called me and told me that the appraisal report is sent out already and I just want to make sure that "you" have the right email address. I still have not recieved it and I have not been able to get through to the appraiser on the phone. This is getting ridiculous .... The thing that is really bothering me is that this is that this is a done deal. I even have title back and the value isn't tight at all. Even if the house underappraises significantly we have plenty of wiggle room without taking a hit on rate.

Also I have sent this guy a decent amount of business in the short time that I've been dealing with him. I can't imagine what could be holding up the appraisal or why the appraiser would be dishonest with my borrower.


I feel like pulling my hair out. Maybe the appraiser is going through a difficult time personally which if so sucks, but if that is the case its not right to cost other people money and make them look bad.

Anyway just felt like venting my appraisal woes here. Your opinion's are vlued as always. Thanks for reading.

One thing you also may want to check is your JUNK folder.

 With spam filters so high these days, a lot of expected emails (especially when attachments are involved) can get bumped.

 If not the case, have your appraiser resend the email.

Good luck!

I considered that and I checked. Also I have his email address in my contact list in outlook, thanks for the suggestion though. I checked my email from home when I got home and its still not there ...hopefully tomorrow!!
