Chapter meetings are on hold until further notice because of guidance from public health officials. REAA will send an announcement out when circumstances change.
Appraisers, if you have any questions regarding doing appraisal requests during the COVID-19 situation, go on-line to the appropriate website for: Fannie Mae/FHLMC, FHA, USDA and VA. Also note: Monitoring the online REAA forum will keep you up to date on the latest Real Estate Appraiser changes. The link for the forum is on the REAA website.
This period in our nation's economy has made it extremely challenging for appraisers. By organizing and working together with other grass roots groups and associations, we strongly agree appraisers can play a tremendous part in shaping the future of our profession.
The acceptance as a chapter of the REAA - Real Estate Appraisers Association, a statewide organization, will allow us to assist our members more effectively while combining our resources to address the many issues that affect our industry and community.
Our group started when two appraisers met for breakfast one day and had an idea to bring together local professionals to share work experiences and learn from one another. This blossomed as more and more people became aware of the opportunity to be a part of a local association. It's been over four years since that first meeting and the Victor Valley Appraiser's Association is still going strong.
We realize now more than ever is the time to unite and become involved with our community as well as other professionals, to work together and promote greater knowledge of our industry through education.
