Sandy Will Delay Loans And Require Reappraisals

Posted in Appraisers, Eminent Domain, Lenders

Loans involving properties in the path of Hurricane Sandy will certainly be delayed according to National Mortgage News. In addition to the obvious business interruption, many properties will need to be reappraised to determine if the Hurricane caused a decrease in property value. Given the volume of reappraisals, the loan process will be severely impacted. David Stevens, president of the Mortgage Bankers Association, told National Mortgage News that he expected mortgage profits and origination volumes to dip for a short period because of days lost to the storm.
