MISMO Seeks Public Comment on Phase Two of Commercial Appraisal Dataset

Tara Dunion tdunion@mba.org.

MISMO®, the real estate finance industry standards organization, seeks public comment on phase two of proposed data standards for the Commercial Appraisal Dataset. The 60-day comment period runs through July 12.

The proposed MISMO dataset enhances the current Commercial Appraisal Dataset, published in May 2021, by adding retail, industrial and office-related data points and use cases. These additions also expand data collected for multifamily properties, which further the ability for commercial appraisers to fully use the standard. The proposed standard helps facilitate efficient exchange of commercial appraisal information, critical for underwriting and loss mitigation between multiple industry participants, and allows them to exchange appraisal information on commercial properties.

The public comment period also provides notice to workgroup participants and industry professionals, prior to final release, to review the exchange and disclose any applicable Patent Rights (as defined by MISMO’s 2018 Intellectual Property Rights Policy). Disclosures and comments should be directed to info@mismo.org.

Release and use of MISMO standards and other resources, including the commercial appraisal dataset standard, are governed by the MISMO Intellectual Property Rights Policy. For more information on the policy, click here.

MISMO’s work to solve key business challenges is made possible due to lender support of the MISMO Innovation Investment Fee.
