History of the Irvine City
Trust-Tax-Irs, Appraiser, Appraisal
Irvine
BC - AD

Archeological research establishes prehistoric man in the Irvine area at least 12,000 years ago, possibly even 18,000 years ago. Scattered evidence of early campsites and rock
shelters can be seen in the undeveloped parts of the city.

Gabrielino Indians moved into the Irvine area 2,000 years ago, establishing dozens of villages. One village was located near the present San Joaquin marsh and another near the
San Joaquin golf course.

The Gabrielinos were of the Shosonean language group. They enjoyed an abundant food supply of shellfish, waterfowl and land animals. They lived in round, woven huts and were
excellent basket weavers and makers of seashell and stone jewelry.

Irvine
1700 - 1800

Gaspar de Portola, a Spanish explorer, entered the San Joaquin Valley in 1769, abruptly ending the tranquil life of the Gabrielinos. With the Spanish came forts, missions and herds
of cattle. The King of Spain began to parcel out lands for missions and for a few large, private land grants. In 1831, after gaining independence from Spain, the Mexican government
secularized the missions, assumed control of land holdings and began distributing ranchos to Mexican citizens who applied for grants. (Irvine)

Three large Spanish/Mexican grants made up the land that later became the Irvine Ranch: Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, Rancho San Joaquin and Rancho Lomas de Santiago.
The oldest, Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, an early Spanish grant to the Yorba family, was confirmed by the Mexican government.

Irvine
1800 - 1900
In 1837, San Juan Capistrano mission lands were granted to Don Jose Sepulveda, later becoming Rancho San Joaquin. Rancho Lomas de Santiago was granted to Teodosio Yorba
in 1846. In that year, the Mexican army was defeated in the final battle of the Mexican-American War. The Treaty of Guadalupe was signed and California was annexed to the United
States.

The Congressional Act of 1851 forced landholders to reapply to the Board of Land Commissioners to get valid title to their ranchos. Original grantees, however, had produced large
families who were deeding, selling and trading portions of the large ranchos to family members and outsiders.

Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana fell prey to tangled titles. In 1868, outside investor Abel Stearns was successful in his suit to dissolve the rancho and divide the property among the
claimants, four of whom were prosperous sheep ranchers: Benjamin and Thomas Flint, Llewellyn Bixby and James Irvine.

Meanwhile, Jose Sepulveda, owner of Rancho San Joaquin, was heavily in debt. In 1864, the year of the Great Drought, Sepulveda sold his 50,000 acres to Irvine, Flint and Bixby for
$18,000. In 1866, Irvine, Flint and Bixby acquired the 47,000-acre Rancho Lomas de Santiago for $7,000. Much of the rancho was not suitable for cultivation, but did border the
Santa Ana River on the north, thereby securing valuable Irvine water rights.

The Irvine, Flint and Bixby ranches were devoted to sheep grazing, although in the 1870's tenant farming was permitted. In 1878, James Irvine acquired his partners' interests for
$150,000. His 110,000 acres stretched 23 miles from the Pacific Ocean to the Santa Ana River.

James Irvine died in 1886. In 1893, his son, James Irvine, Jr., came into full possession of the ranch which he incorporated into The Irvine Company one year later. James, Jr. began
shifting ranch operations to field crops, olive and citrus orchards.

Irvine
1900 - 2000

During World War I, agriculture had intensified, and by 1918, some 60,000 acres of lima beans were grown on the Irvine Ranch. During World War II, two Marine Corps air facilities
were built on land sold to the government by The Irvine Company.

James Irvine, Jr. died in 1947 at the age of 80. Presidency of the company fell to his son Myford, who began opening small sections of the ranch to urban development. Myford died in
1959.

In 1959, the University of California asked The Irvine Company for 1,000 acres for a new campus. The Irvine Company agreed, and the State accepted the land and purchased an
additional 500 acres. The University's consulting architect, William Pereira, and Irvine Company planners drew up master plans for a city of 50,000 people surrounding the university.
The area would include industrial zones, residential and recreational areas, commercial centers and greenbelts. The Irvine Industrial Complex West (now known as The Irvine
Business Complex) opened and the villages of Turtle Rock, University Park, Culverdale, the Ranch and Walnut were completed by 1970.

On December 28, 1971, the residents of these communities voted to incorporate a substantially larger city than that envisioned by the original Pereira plan in order to control the
future of the area and protect its tax base.

By January 1999, the City of Irvine had a population of 134,000 and a total area of 43 square miles. Future plans, however, call for a population of over 200,000 on 46.7 square miles
by the year 2020.

Irvine today and the future   

Thirty years ago, the City of Irvine was still in its infancy. Today, Irvine has grown into what many describe as a "total destination," a community boasting state-of-the-art transportation
programs and systems, an enterprising business environment, stellar educational institutions and a team-like lifestyle.

Irvine's noteworthy, present-day status didn't evolve from happenstance. It's the outcome of mastermind planners, and those engaged to institute the plan. Each day, the Irvine City
leaders and staff work diligently to ensure a quality environment for the City's future.

Using the City's Strategic Business Plan and the General Plan, the Irvine City Council makes decisions, based on fiscal limitations, that will:

Maintain and enhance Irvine's physical environment that will prevent community deterioration
Secure a safe community by assuring the right balance between public safety services and prevention strategies
Encourage economic prosperity by attracting and retaining businesses and sales tax
Promote effective government by assuring that the City organization is flexible, market-based and customer focused in its service delivery
For more than 30 years, residents and businesses have been choosing the City of Irvine because of its dedication to maintaining its reputation as one of the safest, master-planned,
business-friendly communities in the country. This dedication makes Irvine the strong community it is today, and what it will be for generations (Irvine) to come.


What, in the world, are they Doing wRONG? Appraisal Institute suffers another loss! "AI commercial database bites the dust." Appraisal Institute (AI) will be closing down the AI
Commercial Database on November 1, 2005.

THE CALM BEFORE THE STORM!
Appraisal Institute's (
mai) Top Dog (John Ross, CEO) Jumps Ship
Ross: "After nine years with the organization,
I feel that the timing is good for me to explore other opportunities."  

Ross: "
I’d like to see the organization (the appraisal institute) strengthen its ties with the academic community. The profession needs to focus now on developing more
theoretically based tools and on things like
behavioral finance and economics – which is ultimately what dictates the operation of markets. I’ve often stated that the mark of any
profession is in the development of new theory, and in my estimation
there have been few, if any, advances in this regard in the appraisal profession for the last 25 years or
more
. I’d like to see the Appraisal Institute more involved in some way in such thought creation."

XI, 406.03: Adjustments to Comparable Sales (06/30/02)
Each comparable sale that is used in the sales comparison approach to value must be analyzed for differences and similarities between it and the property that is being appraised.
The appraiser must base his or her analysis and any adjustments to the comparable sales on the market data for the particular neighborhood and for competing locat1ons—not on
predetermined or assumed dollar adjustments. If an appraiser's adjustments to comparable sales (or the reconciliation of the comparable sales) are based on unsupported
assumptions or personal opinion that cannot be supported by market data, poor quality appraisals that could have a
discriminatory effect may result."

INTERNATIONAL RIGHT OF WAY ASSOCIATION (IRWA)
Chapter 1 –Los Angeles County
2006 Annual Fall Seminar

Tuesday, October 24, 2006
Quiet Cannon, Montebello, CA

The Los Angeles World Airport's (LAWA) Director of Economic Development admits that the Manchester Square “Voluntary Purchase” Program is a part of LAWA’s Master Plan.   This statement was supported by
one staff member who presented maps indicating that this area has been set aside for parking.  

This Freudian slip of the tough could have major legal consequences since under the agencies “voluntary purchase program” homeowners were not paid Fair Market Value which is “the highest price” required by
State Law in condemnation cases.   

For years Vivian Howell, an IRWA and LAWA mucky muck, has stated that we are not going to pay them “the highest price” because this is a voluntary program.  

This in addition to using unethical appraisal practices like using unqualified appraisal trainees, consultants colluding on values, standardized comparable adjustments, and in some cases- appraising of property
based upon it's existing use, rather than it's “highest and best use.”   It is estimated that these combined, secret practices, have cost property owners millions.

The Director also stated that he foresaw a number of inverse condemnation cases being filed against the agency, by current residents, because the LAWA project has left their neighborhood in a shambles.

If you are a homeowner, property, or seller of property to LAWA in this area we strongly suggest that you contact a qualified Real Estate Condemnation Attorney, or Relocation Expert, and demand a full hearing
into these issues.

It appears that discrimination is something that the Appraisal Institute knows a lot about.  In fact they use to be called T
he American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers until they were
sued, for discrimination, by the Federal Government.  They then changed their name to the Appraisal Institute, same pig, different shade of lipstick.

HOW TO CONDUCT A MAI (MADE AS INSTRUCTED?) APPRAISAL
Quote from David Rosenthal, MAI
Here are some tips from seasoned practitioner, David Rosenthal, MAI (Managing Director of Curtis-Rosenthal, LLC) that can help make your next appraisal experience easy and
productive.

"4.  
Supply all of your market data, up front. Nothing says that your appraiser has to independently find all of the relevant market information. Data is data, so make the job easier
and share any market data that you have already
developed. The appraiser will decide which data to use and how to best use it. Give your appraiser a running start with the benefit
of your advance research."

The  Great Texas Bank Job
"The FIRREA Cover Up - FDIC / RTC   The South West Scam
The  Whitewaters  &  Castle Grandes  of   Texas  and   ALL  Across  America
The S&L Gold Rush - The Lack Of Public Accounting

If the bank’s board of directors were the ones doing the looting, however, they readily hired a pliant appraiser to cook up whatever appraisal value they wanted.  Behind every
fraudulent loan was a fraudulent appraisal.  It is nearly impossible for appraisers to render independent appraisals if the people hiring them do not want one.  When I was in public
accounting, auditors joked that MAI stood for “Made As Instructed.”  The commercial appraisals were largely worthless because they were not independently rendered.  It is so
obvious that it should be beneath mention, but that situation still exists.  

Even if the bank could not find a bona fide buyer, it was supposed to write down the property to fair market value on the books, taking the loss on its financial statements.  The S&L
industry, however, was in dire straits.  Reporting a commercial loss on the deal would not look good, and might get bank regulators, auditors and others asking questions.  Here is
what the bank did to hide its loss.  Another developer showed up, with similar delusions of grandeur and an equally pitiful pipedream, except his was twice as large.  He wanted a $6
million construction loan.  The bank hired an appraiser to concoct the appraisal for the original empty strip mall that valued it at $5 million, even higher than the original pie-in-the-sky
price tag that the original developer dreamed up.  
The MAI commercial appraiser would appraise it for whatever number the bank wanted.  The bank would tell the second
developer that it would loan him the $6 million if he would buy the empty strip mall for $5 million.  The bank would loan the developer the money to make the down payment on the
empty strip mall, and the first two years of loan payments.  The developer never got his hands on that money, but the bank held it in escrow, taking the money out of the commercial
account to make the down payment and loan payments.

When the bank made the $6 million commercial construction loan to the second developer, and played internal accounting games to concoct the “sale” of the first strip mall, instead
of recording the $1 million loss, it recorded a $2 million gain, had a new performing loan on the first strip mall, and the loan was guaranteed to have loan payments made on it for two
years.  Here is a chart to show how the commercial bank hid the loss.

Original loan
$3,000,000

Second MAI  and sale price to second developer  $5,000,000

Gain on phony sale to second developer
$2,000,000

So, with some fancy games and pliant appraisers, the commercial bank recorded a $2 million gain on its deal making.  The reality, however, was that $9 million had gone out the
door, the bank was paying 15% interest to depositors, and no money was coming in, not even interest payments. "

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK (MAI-Made as Instructed Appraisers? Commercial Appraisers?)
1. The Defendants Improperly Used Bargain Sale Transactions to Conceal the True Financial Condition of Defendant Church Extension  30. From at least 1996 to at least April 2002,
the Defendants and others engaged in a scheme to conceal Defendant Church Extension's mounting financial difficulties in order to, among other things, entice investors to invest
and/or reinvest. Specifically, the Defendants and others improperly used bargain sale transactions to generate false paper income by recognizing the difference between the price
paid by Defendant Church Extension and/or United Management and falsely inflated appraisal values as non-cash contributions. Some of appraisers used in connection with the
bargain sale transactions were
Members of the Appraisal Institute, i.e., MAI appraisals. The appraisals used by the Defendants and others were false for several reasons, including,
but not limited to: a) the use of overstated net-operating income figures, which formed the basis of some appraisals; b) the failure to account for the limited real-estate market of some
of the properties, due to federal regulations and private covenants; and c) the failure to account for potential environmental hazards on some of the real-estate properties.
Significantly, because inflated appraisal values were used, the price paid by Defendants Church Extension and/or United Management was a much closer reflection of the actual
value of the properties than the inflated appraisal values. Thus, as a result of using falsely inflated appraisal values, the Defendants and others artificially increased the amount of
non-cash contributions that Defendants Church Extension and/or United Management recognized as income.

2. Plaintiff notified Defendant on May 25, 2004 that it was exercising its option to purchase the
property. Being in agreement that Plaintiff had the right to purchase the property, the parties agreed
to determine the purchase price by each engaging an appraiser who was a member of the
Appraisal
Institute (MAI), with the purchase price to be the average of the two appraisals. Plaintiff engaged
an appraiser from Atlanta, Georgia, while Defendant retained an appraiser from Nashville,
Tennessee. The two appraisals were significantly different. The appraised value determined by
Plaintiff’s appraiser was $1,470,000. The value as determined by Defendant’s appraiser was
$2,375,000.

3. Therefore, on the basis of our review of the record, we conclude that the court properly determined that the plaintiff had met its burden of showing that the city's assessor (jOHN
lEARY,
mai) had overvalued the subject property and that such a finding was legally and logically correct and supported by the evidence before the court.

4. The town’s appraiser, Christopher K. Kerin (Kerin)
MAI, determined that the fair market value
of the subject property on the October 1, 1995 grand list was as follows:
Land $4,825,000
Site improvements 1,000,000
Main building 9,175,000
__________
$15,000,000

Our determination (trier of fact) of value of the subject property, as of October 1, 1995 is as
follows:
Land $4,825,000
Site improvements 1,000,000
Building 5,239,819
___________
Total $11,064,819

5. "As a residential review appraiser with 14 years experience, I see appraiser fraud weekly," says a northeastern appraiser who says he is working with the FBI.  At the same time I
was turning in these 17 fraud reports, I was warned by a prominent Appraisal Institute member not to submit those of a certain ethnic race appraiser because he was well politically
entrenched and it could backfire on me," notes the source. "Also, at the same time, I confided in a local Member of the
Appraisal Institute (MAI) about the appraisal fraud both in
my local area and inside his local AI residential membership.
This MAI later told me to be careful because I could die by the same sword I was wielding (a professional death, not
physical death)."

6.  False Appraisals
I'm looking at an
MAI (commercial appraiser) appraisal right now from one of the most respected appraisers in our area that I know has been influenced in several ways (the
appraisal has been influenced, not him). The representations from the owner of the property concerning zoning, development, potential purchase offers and comparable sales have
boosted the value.

7.  Inclosed is a bound hardcopy of the complaint I previously filed with the
North Carolina Appraisal Board against
John K. Weaver, MAI, (a.k.a. "Jack"
Weaver, commercial appraiser) who is the Deputy Director and Chief Investigator of the North
Carolina Appraisal Board (NCAB). (This complaint text is also available
online at www.boardwatch.org/htmfiles/complainttext1.htm .) Copies of Mr.
Weaver's complete research files are also inclosed in "bound report format,"
as are copies of four appraisal reports on the subject property in question
at the NCAB hearing in question.
The NCAB sat on the complaint for many months and then participated in a scam
to "sweep the complaint under the rug." Following in this letter is text
extracted from a post I made 11/16/2001 to an online discussion group for
real estate appraisers across the country (www.AppraisersForum.com) which
explains and documents the response of the NCAB. (The full post can be found
at http://appraisersforum.com/bbs/index.cgi?read=20707 .) Also included is a
printout of a website page from www.BoardWatch.org (via the "FAQ" hyperlink
from the homepage) which provides a very brief overview of the whole
situation. As the NCAB shirked its responsibilities in the matter, I am now
asking the Appraisal Institute to investigate the behavior of this Institute
member.

8. The behavior of this Member of the Appraisal Institute (MAI) is unacceptable if not outrageous. I've heard no one suggest otherwise. I dislike putting it this bluntly, but here it is in a
nutshell: For the sake of preserving or regaining integrity in North Carolina appraising, it has become necessary to put the Appraisal Institute to the test. The questions are these:
Is the Appraisal Institute part of the problem in North Carolina?
Is the AI an enabler?

9.   If memory serves me correctly, it was members of the
Appraisal Institute (the self proclaimed leader of appraisal association, designated with the "prestigious" MAI that were co-
conspirators of the S&L crisis.
Industry organizations are concerned with one thing: their own survival. With appraisal organizations competing for members, they are more focused on their own self preservation
than on the betterment of the industry as a whole.

Originally posted by RStrahan@Jan 28 2005, 03:28 PM
The various trade associations are impotent. The members of the Appraisal Foundation only count as one vote, so they are regularly outnumbered by the members of the very
industry that promotes appraisal fraud.
I believe that a merging of organizations is a necessity. However, I explicitely exclud the AI. The AI has regularly supported AVMs and stood against the interests of the general
practice appraiser, so it is not longer a viable force for change in the industry. In fact, they have often sided with the lending industry against the rest of the appraisal organizations.

Again, Roger hits it on the nose. An organzation that is purported to be in existance for the appraiser. Today, likely 99% of all residential appraisals are communicated to the lender
and/or clients via email or the internet. We most commonly transmit these in .pdf format since Adobe Acrobat Reader is readily available to all at no cost. Several lenders want
appraisals delivered in what is called AI (Appraisal Institute) ready format. This data format completely rearranges the data structure of the report. The data is thought to be
disseminated into their AVM database. No one but the insiders can prove this, however this format also does something else which is very disturbing. The appraiser's digital signature
is removed from the report itself and transmitted as a separate .jpg file. This comprimises the security of the report allowing the possibility of data to be changed. It is a violation of
USPAP for an appraiser to knowingly comprimise the security of their digital signatures/reports.

Who would have thought? To comply with the Appraisal Institute brand of appraisal delivery, one has to violate USPAP.

10.  Is this accepting an appraisal with a predetermined value?

residential mansion near Orlando, Florida (yes, that's 60,000 square
feet!)  
The property is located along the popular Butler Chain of Lakes and will
have numerous atypical amenities including an indoor and outdoor pool, a
bowling alley, indoor skating rink, a huge ballroom and colonnade, media
rooms, 2-story library, 10 bedroom suites, and staff quarters.
Diane is looking for sales of similar huge top quality residential
properties anywhere in the U.S.

Sales in excess of $15 million are preferred, (MAI COMMERCIAL APPRAISAL) and sales along waterfront
or some type of resort location would be a plus.

The malleability of (real estate) appraisals has been a fact of life since for as long as I can remember, and that is probably longer than most readers have been alive. Down around
the bankruptcy court, they used to say that "MAI" stands for "Made as Instructed."

Working With (Business Valuation) Expert Witnesses
In real estate, the Appraisal Institute awards a designation, MAI, Member, Appraisal Institute. For a variety of reasons, MAI came to have the derogatory meaning, "made as
instructed." Being an "mai" appraiser, whether in real estate, business appraisal, or any other field of expertise is a prescription for a short-term career. http://merceronvalue.

13.  David, from the St. Louis Chapter of the Appraisal Institute, just told me last week that at a recent seminar, an instructor from Guess Who told the group attending the seminar in
Typical Delphi Scam and Cognitive Dissonance fashion, that appraisers would go out of business if they refused to perform AVMs for the banking cartel and the GSEs. Sending the
Appraisal Institute $950 Bucks in MAI, SRPA, SRA professional dues for 2005 is going to be a really tough decision. If I can find a real job that pays, they won't get my money
anymore. Besides being a State Certified General Realty Appraiser is just as good as having Made As Instructed behind my name -- because that's what the public perceives me to
be anyway now -- a member of the world's oldest profession.

14.  Gesoff v. IIC Industries Inc. et al., in the Delaware Chancery Court decided May 18,
2006
The parent then offered its appraisals, but the Court saw them as flawed and smacking of
made-as-instructed justification after the fact. In particular, its appraiser did adjust downwards a
management projection without any justification, failed to take into account appreciated realty,
and used a small company premium without regard to the fact that subsidiaries were, in effect,
large businesses in their respective emerging markets

Commercial real estate Appraiser (Charles D. Bailey,

MANY ERRORS ALLEGED IN PURCHASE OF CARGILL PONDS FOR $100 MILLION IN 2003
By Paul Rogers
Mercury News
Susanna Frohman / Mercury News archives
In 2002, then-Gov. Gray Davis and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, above, announce a $100 million deal for the Cargill salt ponds. Complaint against appraiser Charles Bailey (
MAI) (PDF)
The settlement agreement (PDF)

The appraiser (Charles D. Bailey,
MAI) whose report helped set the $100 million price taxpayers paid in the 2003 Cargill salt ponds deal has been disciplined on allegations that he
made numerous errors and violated federal standards when he set a value for the property.

The state attorney general's office brought a misconduct complaint against Charles Bailey (MAI) of Mill Valley this summer, alleging 24 significant errors in his appraisal of Cargill
lands for the federal government in December 2000.

Bailey, who denied any wrongdoing, agreed Sept. 27 to a censure of his license, known as a ``public reproval.'' He also will pay $4,000 to cover the costs of the state investigation.
Although he will keep his license and can continue working, any disciplinary action on an appraiser's record is very harmful to his career, said Deputy Attorney General Char Sachson.

News of the settlement heightened concerns that taxpayers may have overpaid by millions of dollars when government agencies bought 16,500 acres of Cargill salt evaporation
ponds from Hayward to Alviso to Redwood City in March 2003. It also brought calls Tuesday from political leaders for less secrecy in public land deals.

16.  IS THIS
MAI APPRAISER INCOMPETENCY?
Anyone know any sources of gross sales per store data for specific chains? I am appraising three proposed facilities that are being leased with a level base minimum rent but actual
rent is the greater of that minimum rent or 10% of gross sales. I believe if I use the minimum I could be undervaluing, but am not comfortable using the projections provided without at
least seeing something to compare them to. They are slightly above the minimum rent threshhold.
Paul S. Ness, MAI (commercial appraiser)
www.nessassociates.net

Mr. Ness, MAI was apparently so embarrassed by his own lack of knowledge that he has removed his request from the AppraisalForum.com website.   The sometimes
humorous responses are still there however.

We also received this email from site owner (Wayne McKerley) who suggest that we inappropriately used his copyrighted material.

Paul Ness posted this on AppraisersForum.com.  You copied it without my permission or without Paul's permission to your web site.  You also imply that Paul is incompetent by adding

I ask that you remove this from your website and refrain from using our copyrighted material.

Albany — A real estate
appraisal that the City of Middletown relied on to sell off a property two years ago was so riddled with faults that questions later arose over whether Robert
Buckles " (Appraisal Institute, Associate Member) prepared an appraisal with a predetermined value," a state investigator testified yesterday. In the same hearing, an expert
appraiser testified that the appraisal of the 14-acre property on Ruth Court used outdated property sales for comparisons.

Institute-MAI) PRESIDENT, 2006
I am proud to be a member of this professional organization.  I
had been ignorant to the extreme member benefits until I began serving on the Board in 1999.   I want to inform
you of the advantages regarding Appraisal Institute membership.  A few of the programs and promotions by National which benefit members include.
4.  Lobbying Efforts
National has a full time staff of three attorneys in Washington, DC working on our behalf to keep up with federal legislation and other initiatives that impact our profession and to act
as a liaison to the local chapters in keeping up with state issues.  We also have our own local lobbyist who works with Utah appraisers.  
Lobbying is one of those behind the
scenes activities
that many of us may not give much thought to however, the efforts of these people affect us individually and our profession in ways that many of us are unaware.

20. Mr. Levy describes in his succinct essay the stranglehold that the banking cartel has on the realty valuation industry. Th
e Appraisal Institute has an affiliate appraisal
management company
called REAS (Real Estate Appraisal Services) which operates http://www.aidirectconnection.com. REAS is owned by Charter One Financial Corporation, the
25th largest bank holding company in the USA, home based in Ohio. Royal Bank of Scotland is in merger and acquisition negotiations with Charter One to become the 7th largest
bank holding company in the USA, after the Bank One and JPChase Manhattan merger as the second largest banking conglomerate. This conflict of interest doesn't get any more
blatant than these facts. ( AI Direct Connection®      AI Direct Connection

21. Excuse me—you're standing on my bonus … reflections on credit culture
RMA Journal, The,  May, 2005  by David H. Wesley
Banks have been widely lauded for their performance through the most recent downturn. Pressure for revenue growth has invariably led to deal creep--pricing concessions, then deal
structure concessions (covenant, guarantees, advance rates, etc.), and then the rationalization that otherwise marginal credits are acceptable. It takes both courage and conviction
to remain disciplined and diligent to not trade off your credit risk principles. Looking back at performance during the last downturn, some things were done particularly well, while
others could have been done better.
Following are a few of the excuses that we all have heard (or have used) in the credit approval process, along with their subliminal translations.
We have an MAI appraisal that supports the request.
Translation: The appraisal is a
made-as-instructed real estate valuation.

The Appraisal Institute has had "conflict of issue", issues for many years now. Especially with Charter One Bank and also Washington Mutual (WAMU). The Appraisal Institute
doesn't seem to care. This being "in bed" with Charter One and Washington Mutual was a big part of
our boycott of the Appraisal Institute a few years ago when the AI decided to
create their own AVM (AIRD) with Charter One Bank and WAMU as their biggest backers.
Also, the AI can't even advertise without lying. They have been running radio ads here in Massachusetts, where they tout the lie that "Appraisal Institute Members are better qualified
and have more education" than non-Appraisal Institute members. I can't wait till the first homeowner here gets an AI member with only 2 years experience; and the job is way over
their head.
The sooner we as an industry get rid of Appraisal Management companies, and designation "tea clubs", the better off we will be.

Appraisal Fraud Serious (Commercial Appraiser, sic); Calls for Industry to Team up with Law Enforcement
July 2006
In a June 14 speech, a Federal Bureau of Investigation specialist said that appraisal fraud has become the most serious form of mortgage fraud. In a presentation to an American
Bankers Association conference in Orlando, Ronda Helig, supervisory special agent for the FBI, said that appraisal fraud accounts for 80 percent of all the mortgage fraud that is
reported and that the average loss per occurrence of appraisal fraud exceeds $60,000. Based on these figures, Helig called for a cooperative response between industry and law
enforcement.

Successfully using
forensic appraisals (appraiser) in the tax courts requires that the property owner understand the special issues involved with these types of appraisals, as they
differ significantly from typical real estate appraisals.  The differences cover the gamut of legal issues from communication between the client and the appraiser through the legal
admissibility of appraisal methodology.

Kacha v. Allstate Ins. Co. (06/26/06 - No.
D046961)
A judgment confirming an insurance commercial appraisal award involving property damaged by a wildfire is reversed pursuant to an insured's claims that: 1) the award exceeded the
appraisers' jurisdiction, and the trial court erred by finding he waived the jurisdictional rule; and 2) the court erred by finding he was precluded from challenging the appraisal award
because he took possession of, but did not negotiate, checks the insurer provided him to cover the award.

Foreword
This is the fifth edition of the
Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions. The Standards were originally published in 1971 with the most recent revision published in
1992. The existing Standards have earned a prestigious position. They are frequently cited by Congress in legislation relating to the valuation of federal land acquisitions and have
guided the appraisal process in these matters since their original issuance by the Interagency Land Acquisition Conference. & The Interagency Land Acquisition Conference,
established on November 27, 1968, by invitation of the Attorney General, is a voluntary organization composed of representatives from the many federal agencies engaged in the
acquisition of real estate for public uses. The Conference adopted and continues to adhere to several goals with respect to land acquisition, including the promulgation of uniform
appraisal standards and guidelines for appraisal reports. The broad experience of the member representatives of the Interagency Land Acquisition Conference assures that the
federal appraisal standards developed for land acquisitions are uniform, fair, and efficient. The Interagency Land Acquisition Conference is chaired by the Assistant Attorney General
for the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department of Justice. Its activities are conducted by ad hoc committees composed of member representatives.

The Interagency Land Acquisition Conference Executive is Virginia P. Butler, Chief of the Land Acquisition Section of the Environment and Natural Resources Division, Department of
Justice. James D. Eaton, MAI, of the Appraisal Unit, Department of Justice, authored this 2000 revision of the Uniform Appraisal Standards for Federal Land Acquisitions. He was
assisted in this effort by Appraisal Unit Chief Brian Holly, MAI; trial attorney Marc Gordon; and Ms. Butler. These Standards were submitted to the Appraisal Institute for editorial
review and the Department of Justice grate-fully
acknowledges the editorial assistance of the Appraisal Institute in their preparation. While the vast majority of federal land acquisition is achieved through voluntary means,
sometimes litigation is necessary. With this in mind, Mr. Eaton has done an admirable job of updating the case law, expand-ing the treatment of novel or difficult valuation questions,
and recognizing the vast changes that have recently characterized the real estate appraisal profession.


2006
Appraisal Information Needs Survey Results
During August 2006, the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®’ (NAR) Marketing Research Department invited 86,777 appraiser members and recipients of the Appraisal
Section of the weekly NAR ListServe message to participate in an online survey. Findings reflected in this report were collected from responses received between August 10th and
25th, 2006.
The goal of the survey was to understand how Appraiser members conduct their business, obtain appraisal industry information, and make decisions on their appraisal education and
designations.

Joel Henson's business, Dixie Drywall Co., is located on about one-and-a-half acres of land off
Valley Street. About one acre of the property is grass.
Instead of continually paying a landscaping company $75 to cut the grass, he decided to try to sell
that piece of his property. After determining an asking price, he called Ron Kuczak, a local real
estate appraiser.
"He came out and gave me my options,"
Henson said. "He more or less determined
what the land would be worth if I kept it and
put up some warehouses."

REAL ESTATE APPRAISAL
Nature of Appraisal Work (U.S. Department of Labor
Bureau of Labor Statistics)
Commercial appraisers and assessors of real estate estimate the value of real property for a variety of purposes, such as to assess property tax, to determine a sales price, or to
determine the amount of a mortgage that might be granted on a property. They may be called on to determine the value of any type of real estate, ranging from farmland to a major
shopping center, although they often specialize in appraising or assessing only a certain type of real estate such as residential buildings or commercial properties. Assessors
determine the value of all properties in a locality for property tax purposes whereas appraisers appraise properties one at a time for a variety of purposes, such as to determine what
a good sale price would be for a home or to settle an estate or aid in a divorce settlement.

FannieMae's
Property (Commercial Appraiser, SIC) and Appraisal Guidelines—details their general requirements for analyzing the property residential appraisal, rather than
commercial,
aspects of conventional mortgages secured by one- to four-family properties. It also discusses special considerations for certain types of housing-units in condominium,
PUD, and cooperative projects; manufactured (and other factory-built) homes; Community Living group homes; mixed-use properties; properties affected by environmental hazards;
urban properties; affordable housing program properties; properties located in special assessment or community facilities districts; properties subject to leasehold interests (including
those held by community land trusts); and energy-efficient properties—that merit special consideration in the property and appraisal review. Because the evaluation of a property is
such a vital part of the risk analysis, they expect a lender to place as much emphasis on underwriting the property and reviewing the appraisal as it does on underwriting the
borrower's commercial creditworthiness.
