The Oregon Association of Realtors(r) has emailed a survey -- but you might be interested in it, as well!

The HVCC (the House Value Code of Conduct) has been a very controversial "new" code which took effect May 1, 2009.

The reason I'm shaing this survey is because it's important that we voice our opinions . . . and this survey will do EXACTLY that.  It's not long a survey and will take you less then 5 minutes.

Please take the time to speak out if you have any issues at all.  In fact, if you like the new rules, so state!

This is the quote from The Oregon Association of Realtor(s) email from Andrea Bushnell, CEO and General Counsel:

"There have been increased problems related to appraisals in recent months.  On May 1, Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC) rules were adopted regarding mortgages that will be owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. NAR is concerned that the rules could delay or actually eliminate a number of potential home sales. NAR would like to assess the extent of the problems, and you can help by completing this short survey. Your response to a brief online questionnaire will help the Association and policymakers address the potential problems.
All responses will be treated as confidential and will be compiled into a brief report. The survey closes on June 30.   The link to the survey is below: "


Since this is NOT state specific -- although sent from my Realtor(r) association -- it's for all of you who WANT your voice heard, here's a great oportunity to have your say!
