"Reducing Liability – Using the ANSI Residential Measuring Standards"
Each year it seems as if more and more lawsuits are filed against real estate appraisers, with the most frequent claim being the appraiser misrepresented the measured Gross Living Area square footage of the home. It can seem perplexing as to why these claims continue to plague even experienced appraisers. At first glance, measuring a residential home seems straightforward. But often, there are differences in the gross living area, depending upon who is doing the measuring. The big three (appraisers, assessors and realtors) each use different methods for determining GLA. Since GLA is a critical component in residential valuation, the use of inconsistent measuring methods often results in a domino effect. Incorrect GLA calculations also affect value conclusions with the resulting value conclusions misrepresented to the client, which can be a serious liability. This session addresses the measuring conundrum and provides a methodology to eliminate inconsistencies and thus reduce appraiser liability.
