Keynote Panel (CE SESSION)

Our opening session will begin with Freddie Mac discussing their most recent policy updates as well as a report card on how appraisers handled the Covid-19 Flexibilities. We’ll also hear from VA, FHA and USDA on their policy and guidelines updates. Each agency will report on the impact of the pandemic on their default rates and how this may impact the real estate market going forward.

Each agency will address how they anticipate handling the many challenges facing the appraisal profession including training the next generation of appraisers, introducing new technologies as well a progress report on new reporting formats.

Polls will be interspersed throughout to keep discussions lively and enhance interactivity.
