I'm an appraiser as well, every deal we've had has required me to put my appraiser hat on and get idiotic agent BPOs in line. The lender is going to do their own evaluation of the property, if they feel you are selling below market they will kill the deal - and agents will inflate BPOs to try and get business from banks.
Trust me - there's more to this nonsense than meets the eye - which is really unfortunate for folks just trying to do the right thing. Drop me an email if you'd like more info.
Having an experienced short sale agent is very critical to make a difficult process as eas as possible.
