As usual, the left creates the situations that cause the problems they are supposedly trying to fix. The appraisal profession was hit hard taking 30% decrease in fees while fees went up 15% to the consumer. Newly created middle-men took the easy profit. Most appraisers are now sending their data entry work to India because they can no longer afford to staff an office with American workers. Without a decent profit there is no incentive for the pros to hire and train good appraisers to carry on the torch, a process which takes two to three years and does not always have a positive outcome. Dodd-Frank is a classic example of what is wrong with America today.
