B. Appraisals on DHHL - Appraisals on Department of Hawaiian Home Lands (DHHL) properties (existing and proposed construction) only require the use of the Cost Approach. This change was brought about because appraisers felt that performing the Sales Approach on DHHL violated the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices (USPAP). Licensed appraisers are required to conform to USPAP which identifies Market Value as “…the most reasonable price which a property should bring in a competitive and open market:”. The Market Approach or Sales Comparison Approach is no longer required as these properties are neither freely transferable nor subject to an open market.
In the Reconciliation Section of the URAR under Conditions of the Appraisal, the appraiser can conclude that the appraisal is being completed per HUD instructions for FHA mortgage insurance purposes only and the sales comparison approach is waived for DHHL properties.
A statement can be added in the Reconciliation Section of the URAR when estimating the final value that, “the value stated in the appraisal is not “market value” as defined in USPAP”, however, the appraiser must include a date (which is the date of the inspection), a value and sign the appraisal.
