Good links here. The BOA link is interesting. I did a BPO this week on a house where there had been 7 refused offers by BOA. Now the seller is talking deed in lieu.

Bryant I really believe they are, I have had a few cases where the agent doing a BPO or appraiser has said that the bank is looking for a number.  If that isn't appraisal or value manipulation I don't know what is.
