ABC’s Appraisal “Tip”

  • Q: The majority of my clients are lenders. Should my comments be saying anything different when appraising a property for an individual?

    A: Often when appraisals are performed for individuals there is a need to give even more detail as they are not regular users of appraisal services. Keep in mind your communication must be sufficient enough for the client to understand and rely on for their decision. In order to be compliant with USPAP Standards Rule […]

  • I do not know what I would do without The Companion and all the other benefits you get with ABC. The Companion is VERY easy to use and understand! Thank you Frank and Bobby for developing such a wonderful website. What a lifesaver it has been.

    Brian Frank — Bartlett, IL
  • All I can say is it’s great and time is not an issue any more. I have not used the highest and best use or weighted analysis yet but I will start now that I have nailed the Allocation/Ratio. The site is great. What took you guys so long to place this on the market, that’s my only complaint. I am very pleased with the service.

  • One of the best items for use by appraisers is “The Companion” because it gives the appraiser all of the tools needed to be in compliance with UAD and USPAP. It provides you with all the information you need for a solid work file.

    Jerry Whitley — Seguin, TX
  • I subscribed to Appraiser’s Business Companion in Feb 2014 confident that it would be a top notch product. I have known Bobby Crisp, Frank Baker and Diana Jacob for years and have great respect for their knowledge, experience, professionalism and integrity.

    Kim Mitchell – Garden Ridge, TX
  • The Companion is an outstanding resource for appraisers. It allows the appraiser to provide a superior report and analysis that is well documented. Y’all have a great product! Keep up the good work.”

    Scott Craft — Garland, TX
  • The Companion is a fantastic resource and I believe all appraisers should be using it. Now, more than ever, a well documented work file is critical if the need arises to defend our opinion of value and support the rationale leading to our conclusions. I have been using The Companion on every assignment since I joined and the support from the ABC team has been excellent.”

  • Best money I have spent on my business in a long time!

    Sheron Taylor — Allen, TX
  • I have sent appraisers to your website to learn about adjustments, as well as having templates for comments. Your site meets a great need. Every appraiser in the country should be using The Companion.”

    Timothy C. Andersen, AQB Certified USPAP Instructor - Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  • The Companion is by far the best appraisal reference material source that I’ve subscribed to! The website is user friendly and the support staff is great! You can talk to the experienced appraisers that developed and maintain these valuable resources.

    Bob Keeney — Corpus Christi, TX
  • The allocation ratio method has taken some time to get use to, but putting together the templates (through your suggestions) has helped out significantly. But as I noted when I purchased the subscription I saw an even bigger value in the documentation and links to the different portion of the URAR through the view of FHA, VA and Fannie Mae.

    Brad Bassi — Temecula, CA
  • I utilized the spreadsheets today and am very pleased with the results. My background is in economics and regression analysis and therefore I use the same appraisal methodology and logic as your spreadsheets provide. Although I have other spreadsheets that I’ve developed for use, they are somewhat limited. I find that your formats are very complete and perfect for my workfile.  Thank you again.

    Thomas Farmer — Houston, TX
  • I would like to take a moment to thank you for The Companion. I doubt many of us have been doing weighted sales analysis or allocation either often enough or correctly. This product is awesome! Although I hope I never have to, I would argue the workfile’s data and analysis with much more confidence using ABC. Being rather old school,

    Bob Hatfield — Waco, TX
  • I have a trainee who was going for her certification license with Texas Appraiser Licensing and Certification Board. I have been using The Companion for almost a year now and incorporated the Allocation/Ratio, Weighted Analysis, Highest and Best Use, and many of the certifications and comments within our reports and work file.

    Wade Jordan - Garden Ridge, TX
  • The Companion is a great piece of mind when completing a report. I now have substantial information to back up my adjustments should they be questioned by anyone. Additionally, knowing that when the out of the ordinary situation comes up, I can ask Frank, Bobby or Diana and receive advice that has years of experience is invaluable.
