Election Results and Annual Meeting Recap from President Sumers

Friday, November 19, 2021

Good Morning NDAA Members,

The elections are now complete for your 2022 NDAA Board of Directors. David Nord has won the runoff election by another tight margin! David Nord received 36 votes (51%) to Eric Oberg’s 34 votes (49%). I would like to congratulate David on his victory and thank both David and Eric for their willingness to run for leadership roles within the organization. We need members like these who want to get involved and ensure our organization continues to grow and prosper.

With Patty Hodenfield taking on her new role as the Secretary/Treasurer the Board will need to appoint a member to a one-year director position. This will expire at the end of 2022 and a new three-year director position will be voted on by the membership leading up the 2022 NDAA Annual Conference.

I would like to give a big thank you to all of the individuals that helped make our annual conference a success. Kathy Huss, Patty Hodenfield and Debbie Ellerton worked tirelessly to make this event possible and it amazes me how effortless they make it look for the rest of us. I also want to thank Rhonda Knudson, Joe Ibach, Ross Berg, and Dean Rylander for their past commitments to the Board. They have all contributed greatly to this organizations creation; our success is a testament to their efforts. I also want to thank Bill Gion for his most recent two-year stint as our President. He confronted many challenges to include the appraisal waiver and COVID; navigating us through it all for the better. His leadership was sound and instrumental for our organization.

Lastly, I want to thank you all as members for the support you provide our organization; we are nothing without you. Your willingness to attend our conferences and get involved where you can is not taken for granted. This past week at the Annual Conference your generosity was overwhelming. As a group we raised $5,078 for our fellow member Tiffiney Dick and her family. There was a matching funds challenge set by member John Whartnaby and we met that goal and more. Tiffiney is a Charter member of this organization and served on the Board. Her family has asked for our prayers as they navigate her battle with cancer; one that many of us know all too well. We continue to send her our support and I again thank you for your generosity.

We have a big year ahead of us with many initiatives to kick-off. I encourage you to get involved where you can and we will keep the membership informed along the journey.

Until next time,

Joe Sumers

President NDAA

FHA Issues Temporary Partial Wavier of Appraisal Requirements in Changing Markets

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) issued a Temporary Partial Waiver to parts of the Single-Family Housing Policy Handbook 4000.1 (Handbook 4000.1), Section II.D.4.c.iii.(F)(2): FHA Appraisal Requirements in Changing Markets – Required Analysis and Reporting. This partial waiver addresses difficulty in changing markets with increasing property values and a shortage of housing supply.
To address this, FHA is issuing this temporary partial waiver of the Handbook 4000.1 requirement in Section II.D.4.c.iii.(F)(2) that the appraiser must include, analyze, and report a minimum of two active listings or pending sales on the appraisal grid. This temporary partial waiver of established policy will help ensure the continued availability of affordable housing in these markets.
FHA roster appraisers must continue to comply with Handbook 4000.1 requirements for comparable selection, adjustments, and inclusion of proper data collection and reporting of market conditions on Fannie Mae Form 1004MC/Freddie Mac Form 71.
This temporary partial waiver is effective for the 12-month period between April 26, 2021, and April 26, 2022 and can be found here:
