Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

What Does It Mean When a VA Appraiser Invokes the Tidewater Initiative?

(This actually came up recently involving one of our agents.)

When the buyer of a property uses a VA home loan, the appraisal process is a little different than other mortgage types.  The biggest difference is that lenders do not order the appraisal directly with appraisers.  The Lender will request the appraisal through the Veteran Administration’s online portal.  Then, VA assigns the appraisal request using a rotation system of VA approved appraisers.  VA looks to have approved appraisers in each county or area. 

Tidewater does not involve flood plains and is the VA code word for giving the lender, the one that is working with the buyer that is purchasing a property using a VA loan, notice of having two days to run comps and get them to the VA appraiser for their review. The comparable (sold) listings that are pulled must be within a 1-mile radius, be apples to apples in comparison and also only be less than 6 months of history.

Appraisal Rebuttals

One of the other differences involves the process when the appraisal is going to be potentially short of the purchase price.  Typically if the appraised value is going to be short of the purchase price on anything other than VA, the appraiser just sends the completed appraisal back to the lender.  Then if there is a disagreement in value, it is possible for someone to provide additional sales or information to rebut the appraisal.  Appraisers are humans and occasionally there is information they may not find.  So it is possible that additional information provided through the rebuttal process could increase the value.  Each lender’s appraisal rebuttal process could vary slightly, but some lenders will not allow rebuttals.

Notification Appraisal is Short

The VA appraisal process provides an extra step which is helpful in cases where the value is coming up short of the price.  That is where the Tidewater Initiative comes into play.  If the VA appraiser feels the value may be short of the purchase price, the lender contact is notified.  The appraiser states that he/she is “invoking the Tidewater Initiative”.  This Tidewater process is a very formal and specific one.

Typical Tidewater Process

If the VA appraiser feels the value may be short of the purchase price, then the Tidewater Initiative is invoked.  This process typically looks like the following:

  • Appraiser provides Tidewater Notice to lender’s designated point of contact (POC)
  • Details of the request are provided to POC
  • Point of Contact notifies Realtors of the Tidewater Initiative notification
  • POC has 2 working days to return any additional information to the appraiser
  • Appraiser is not at liberty to discuss contents of the appraisal
  • Additional information is reviewed by appraiser
  • Completed appraisal is uploaded to the VA portal
  • Lender POC is notified of the completed order
  • Lender’s VA underwriter performs a review of the appraisal and completes the Notice of Valuation (NOV)
  • Appraisal is provided to the Veteran

If additional comparables are provided, then there are specific requirements of the process.  Typically the real estate agent is the one providing the comparables.

Requirements of Additional Comparable Sales Provided

  • Provide within 2 working days
  • Must be in format similar to comparable sales grid on the appraisal report
  • Verification the sale actually closed
  • Pending sale contracts used to support a time adjustment must include all contract addendums
  • Brief narrative describing similarities or differences in pending sale and subject property

Hopefully this has provided helpful information to better understand the Tidewater process.  Just a reminder, in some areas a VA appraisal can take a bit of time.  Lately, most VA appraisals are taking quite a while to get back because of the high number of orders.  Although the delays are also caused by a lack of approved appraisers in many areas.  So, good advice is to allow extra time and to order the appraisal early on VA purchases.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

Price vs. Value
 
To start, a sale “price” is the amount of money that the buyer agrees to pay for, and for which the seller agrees to transfer, the property.  Think of it as the “exchange” price.  Based on a widely variable set of determinate and indeterminate factors, this amount may be very close to, or very far from, the “market value” of a property.  “Price” is just one element to be taken into consideration when determining “market value”.  Often it can be the most predictive element, but that does not make it equivalent.
 
What about the potential for a change in property use?  Or the zoning classification?  What about an easement or some other key entitlement or restriction?  Would any of these variables affect market value?  Of course they would!  Without a detailed analysis performed under recognized methods and techniques, and using current data to consider all three major approaches to value – income potential, comparable sales and replacement costs – and then reconciling those relevant results, a fair “market value” cannot be reliably determined.  And these skills are precisely what an appraiser is trained and licensed to do.  
 
This is why the lending community relies almost exclusively on an appraisal report to estimate the “market value” of the collateral property when making a mortgage loan.  A Broker Price Opinion (BPO) just won’t cut it.  There are many circumstances for which a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) or a BPO provide the kind of information needed to assist an owner or the owner’s agent in evaluating the options for dealing with a specific property versus the structured, detailed analysis provided by an appraisal report.   But that does not make them equivalent.  A BPO or CMA is not a comprehensively sufficient analysis to establish “market value,” though it may be done competently enough to support a likely sales price “prediction” or a listing marketing “strategy”.
 
So unless you hold a current appraiser license, the safest approach is to avoid using the term “value”.  Instead, you should use price “estimate” or “prediction”.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

 Competence and Licensing
 
You may be a great contract negotiator, but you know you cannot write substantive provisions into a client’s contract unless you have a law license.  You may be a very skilled closing or escrow counselor, but you cannot perform certain escrow or closing tasks without an escrow agent or law license.  You may be highly accomplished at estimating mortgage qualifications for customers or clients, but you cannot underwrite and originate a loan without a mortgage loan originator license.  Similarly, you may have tremendous skills in estimating the likely sale price of a home, and even more so in the marketing strategy of recommending a listing price based on that analysis, but that is clearly not the same as the detailed process used to establish a “market value” for purposes of collateralizing a mortgage loan.  Establishing a “market value” requires adherence to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).  And in Texas-like in most states-performing that task requires an appraiser license.
 
As a license holder, you are allowed to create a CMA or BPO relating to the estimated price of real property as part of the ordinary course of business if the analysis, opinion or conclusion is related to the actual or potential management, acquisition, disposition or encumbrance of an interest in real property.  Most importantly, the CMA or BPO cannot be referred to as an appraisal, and you are required to use a disclaimer that specifically informs the user or reader that this is not an appraisal and was not developed following the guidelines in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).  See Tex. Occ. Code Sec. 1101.102(1)(A)(xi) and Title 22 TAC Sec. 535.17.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!   

It’s that time of year when home owners are protesting their property tax values so when talking about “value”, choose your words carefully!
 
“What do you think this property is worth?”  All of us who are in the real estate profession have been asked this question hundreds of times.  You try to answer it for a customer or client each time you do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) or a Broker Price Opinion (BPO).  Real estate brokers and sales agents do not offer “opinions of value” – that area of expertise requires an appraiser license in Texas.
 
As a license holder, you are allowed to perform a BPO in the name of the broker as a distinct service and for a separate fee.  This is a very particular skill you can learn to do competently.  But when you do so, be careful to ensure you stay clearly within your area of expertise – and do not exaggerate the skill you’ve developed.  Real estate brokers and sales agents do not offer “opinions of value” so there is no such thing as a “broker opinion of value” (BOV) in Texas.
 
Most importantly, the CMA or BPO cannot be referred to as an appraisal, and you are required to use a disclaimer that specifically informs the user or reader that this is not an appraisal and was not developed following the guidelines in the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).  See Tex. Occ. Code Sec. 1101.102(1)(A)(xi) and Title 22 TAC Sec. 535.17.
 
The Take-Away
 
Unless you hold a current appraiser license, the next time someone asks you “what do you think that property is worth?”choose your words carefully when you answer.  The most professional approach is to simply avoid using the term “value” without an appropriate prior qualifier that makes a clear distinction that you are not offering “an opinion of value”, which is the legal definition of an “appraisal” in Texas and requires an appraiser license to do competently and legally.

IMPORTANT COMPLIANCE REMINDERS FROM BROKER ANNE!

 
There is a group of independent brokers who have taken it upon themselves to “police” the internet as a “courtesy.”  They’re not out to get you or us, but are contacting brokers all over the state.
In May 2018, TREC changed the rules requiring that you end your team name with the words “Group” or “Team”. 
They also made it a violation to refer to yourself as the President, Founder, Owner, Partner…..or any such title, unless you own or founded the sponsoring brokerage.
I have called TREC enforcement to get clarification, and yes, even if you are the owner of your Team or LLC……….the TREC rule still applies.
PLUS,  you must have a link to a correctly completed IABS form and a link to the Consumer Protection Notice!  The links have to be functioning!
This is all true for your LinkedIn, your Facebook, all websites, all social media………everything, everywhere!

Welcome Glad You're Here

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

What TREC says about commercial titles and advertising for license holders.
 
I’m a commercial agent and also the president of a brokerage.  Can I use the title “president” in my advertising?
 
No.  Even though you may hold such a title, using it in advertising implies you are responsible for the operations of the brokerage.  Similarly, a sales agent cannot use the title CEO, COO, or other similar title in advertising.  Remember, this extends to email or website addresses.
