The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (the “Agencies”) issued a notice of proposed rule making on November 20, 2018. The Agencies propose to raise the threshold for appraisal requirements on residential real estate transactions from $250,000 to $400,000. The proposal would also incorporate the rural residential appraisal exemption set forth in the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act signed earlier this year.
