Lenders and Bankers

The practice of financial institutions assessing the exposure of their loan portfolios to credit loss is becoming increasingly more common. Do you want your entire lender portfolio based upon online statistical evaluations?

Why You Need an Appraiser

  • You need a valuation expert to observe the property to make a more accurate lending decision;
  • You need an accurate valuation of a unique property; and
  • You want to reduce your risk and increase your confidence that the investment is solid.

Why You Need an ASA-Designated Appraiser

ASA designated appraisers have completed rigorous education requirements, must adhere to high ethical and moral standards, and have extensive and specialized appraisal experience to meet your needs. You can be assured that all designated members of ASA:

  • Have achieved qualifications superior to non-designated appraisers;
  • Have passed rigorous testing, education, and experience qualification standards;
  • Maintain higher standards of ethics and educational requirements and are subject to disciplinary actions for lack of adherence to these standards;
  • Prepare appraisal reports that meet or exceed the standards of peer review, the standards outlined in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP), and ASA's Principles of Appraisal Practice and Code of Ethics; and
  • Maintain their designation by demonstrating a commitment to continuing education and professional appraisal activities every five (5) years.
