Doesn't it seem like the lending underwriter is always out to get you?
At Seward Real Estate Services, we understand that sentiment and continually strive to produce appraisal reports that are not only 100% USPAP compliant, but that are also review-proof! We understand what the lender is looking for and we make sure to cater to them, so that you don't have to!
