Over the past decade we have witnessed a trigger of world events directly impacting the financial and real estate markets, resulting in property appreciation spirals to historic highs, along with creative financing approaches to generate sales. This was then followed by a collapse in real estate property values where extraordinary levels of foreclosure and bankruptcy flooded our nation.

The dynamics of such a volatile market demanded an increased emphasis on regulation, training and education in the home valuation arena, requiring the appraisers to keep abreast of new techniques and market forces.
