This is why when appraisers come in at market value they sometimes get a complaint or sued for discrimination. A second willing to please "fixer" appraiser desperate for work will come in over market value making the borrower assume the first appraisal was too low and biased. The second appraisal is generally the wrong one over market value. It's the second appraiser that should be sued in all of these big "racial discrimination" media articles, complaints and lawsuits. I'm trying to get ahold of those second appraisals so I can report the appraisers so they can lose their license. They should go to prison for bank fraud along with the AMCs who approved those appraisals.

"The following court documents in the case Naftali Horowitz v. Nicole Andrews, Fastapp AMC founder v. Fastapp AMC president, confirm what appraisers have been saying all along, that if you want high-volume AMC work, you have to lower your fees to 1980’s level, have 24 hour turn times, and, above all, be a number hitter.
Horowitz, Fastapp founder, filed a lawsuit in New York court on January 31, 2022 against defendant Andrews to, among other things, remove Andrews as an officer and director of the Company because, when he brought her on as shareholder in 2020, he claimed that she made certain false representations and promises that were never kept. Horowitz is an individual residing in Brooklyn, New York, and is the founder, and, at all relevant times, a 49% shareholder Fastapp. Andrews is an individual residing in Newport Beach, California, and, at all relevant times, a 51% shareholder of Fastapp.
Horowitz claimed that Andrews engaged in conduct constituting potential violations of the Appraiser Independence Requirements under the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 (“Dodd-Frank Act”), including unlawfully seeking to influence an appraiser to encourage a targeted value to facilitate the making or pricing of the transaction in violation of 15 U.S.C. § 1639e(b)(3). (See copies of emails in Exhibit 3)."
Read the article here with all the email exhibits. This has been happening forever. If you are a kiss ass AMC pleasing appraiser you will never have a complaint or lawsuit filed against you.
