Honesty and Integrity
Richard Kane & Associates has an established reputation for providing competent and ethically superior appraisals.
We have quite a few responsibilities as appraisers, but our chief duty is to our clients. Typically, in residential practice, the appraiser's client is the lender ordering the appraisal, and often the appraisal is ordered by a third party the lender has retained to maintain independence. appraisers have certain duties of privacy to their clients, plus many rules and regulations controlling with whom we share information. Other obligations include numerical accuracy depending on the assignment's nature, acquiring and sustaining an appropriate level of competency and education, and the appraiser must conduct him or herself as a professional. We take these ethical responsibilities very serious. Appraisers also have standards outside of boundaries of clients and others. All our appraisals follow Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) guidelines. We meet or exceed the industry standards set in place for professionalism. We can't accept anything less from ourselves. Completing orders based on contingency fees is never an option. In other words, we don't agree to complete an appraisal report and collect payment on the contingency of the loan closing. It should be obvious that fabricating a home's value to achieve a higher fee is unethical!. All appraiser are insured and licensed. You can be confident in our product and our goal is to provide an objective analysis to assist in making informed Real Estate decisions.
