In April 2018, the OCC, the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and the FDIC (collectively, the agencies) adopted a final rule to amend regulations requiring appraisals of real estate for certain transactions. The final rule increased the threshold above which appraisals are required for commercial real estate transactions, from $250,000 to $500,000. This increase allows lenders to reduce the cost of credit for loans at or below the revised threshold for commercial real estate. However, some believe that community banks face a disadvantage if they are not able to perform in-house evaluations.

This presentation will provide guidance from which a sound real estate evaluation program can be started or strengthened. It will include a detailed discussion about required evaluation content, including the direct sales comparison, income, and cost approaches to market value. In addition, the webinar will address previously defined appraisal exceptions, circumstances when an appraisal may be more appropriate, and the validation of previously established valuations, including the useful life of a valuation.
