I'm just wondering if other realtors in the area are having problems dealing with appraisers, and getting timely appraisals. Renee and Tom

Yes, I have! It seems like many appraisers are really overworked and there aren't enough appraisers to handle the workload right now. Loan officers have been telling me it is because so many appraisers got out of the business and now with pending sales up in some areas 25-30%+ over this time last year they just have too many appraisal requests and not enough appraisers to handle them all in a timely manner. I just had a couple different appraisals take two WEEKS to get back after they were completed (one for VA and one for FHA).

There just never seems like there are enough appraisers out there. The low rates and improving housing market have caused some delays in my area as well.
