  1. Is an appraiser required to report the transfer history of a comparable listing/pending sale in the past 12 months? An AMC recently required me to remove this statement as the comparable was not a “Sale” and, thus, this disclosure/reporting is not required

    • USPAP requires reporting for “closed” sales, however this does not mean you should not report transfers for active/pending listings. The reason they require to remove it is, I think, they go with their check mark, and I guess check lists specifies “closed sales;” but on the same note listings should not go on regular gird either, and listings are not requirement to be in the grid to derive value. I think it is up to you, how you will structure your response; you can prove your right to report, or not to get into fight with them, you can remove this reporting from the grid, but still mention it in report.
