As of April 1, 2022, Fannie Mae has started requiring appraisers to measure and calculate square footage using the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) system – or appraisals will be rejected.

This program will help appraisers understand, measure, and deliver floor plans that meet ANSI and Fannie Mae’s requirements, and help REALTORS to keep in step with these standards.

The program will provide the perfect primer on ANSI and give you key details on how to comply with ANSI, work these new standards into your appraisals, and stay out of trouble.

Each attendee will also receive a copy of FNMA’s announcement as well as the discussion ANSI had with appraisers regarding this system.

This class will cover:

  • How to handle stairs.
  • What to do with low or sloping ceilings.
  • Why Fannie Mae is adopting uniform standards.
  • How to handle unique rooms, curves and more.
  • How to stay out of trouble!

Come learn the quick and solid information that you’ll need to do this right.  Don’t miss this valuable program – Register TODAY!
