HUD official to speak at conference; review PAVE Action Plan released in March 2022
March 29 - Melody Taylor, an official with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Executive Director of the Interagency Taskforce on Property Appraisal and Valuation Equity (PAVE), is slated to speak at the 2023 International Association of Assessing Officers Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, Aug. 27-30.
Last week marked the one-year anniversary of the release of the Action Plan by the Biden-Harris Administration’s Interagency Task Force on Property Appraisal and Valuation Equity (PAVE). The plan represents a wide-ranging set of reforms to advance equity in the home appraisal process. HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge marked the anniversary with a video statement highlighting the progress made.
The PAVE Action Plan focused on issues with appraisals as part of the home buying and lending processes but also noted that sharing parts of historical appraisal data to foster the development of unbiased valuation methods could support local tax assessment and address potential issues in property tax assessment.
IAAO representatives recently met in Washington, D.C. with Associate Deputy Assistant Secretary Taylor as part of meetings with industry groups. IAAO also met last August with senior representatives of HUD in a video call on the issue of fair housing valuation.
