“Residential UAD Review – The Right Way”

 4-Hour CE Class 

 BREA (formerly OREA) Course Approval No. 1210020001

              Scroll down and read what appraisers are saying …..  about “Residential UAD Review : The Right Way “

 Class Description:

Many appraisers have not been taught the correct way to use the UAD format when evaluating the subject and the respective comps.   As a result, there have been many delays in the reporting process.

The UAD format remains the most misunderstood part of the appraisal process.

Now, starting in Jan. 2014,  Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, will be very aggressive with “hard stops” — returning many reports to the appraiser if the UAD format is not followed correctly.

This class will undertake a detailed review of a UAD reporting format and try to clear up many of the UAD misconceptions.

As an appraisal reviewer, I have spoken to many of you in the last 4 years….

In fact, I bet our conversations have been lengthy, since the start of the UAD (Uniform Appraisal Dataset) in September 2011



Since its release, the UAD has undergone some major changes… making it more vital to stay current with all the “curveballs” coming our way.

Listen to the appraisers who have completed this UAD class….

“Great class.   Well worth the time.   Bruce provides new UAD clarity. “
Thanks, Pat D .     CA. Appraiser

“Bruce Ford has a wide range of appraisal knowledge. He has helped me greatly over the past few years in his reviewing function.  He helps you become a better appraiser.  I trust in Bruce’s ability to drill down into the UAD process and offer insights into what’s coming next.”
