A: How about 101? One to screw it and 100 Scoop readers to debate whether the screwer utilized the right approach/technique, and if not, should he/she be turned in to the State Power & Light Bulb Screwer Board.
A: Three. One to research it, one to inspect it and one to call the client to ask exactly what number wattage to use.
A: First, if in the appraiser’s opinion, the original light bulb should be changed, the appraiser must identify and set forth any additional data considered and relied upon and the reasoning and basis for using a new light bulb.
A: Appraisers do not screw in light bulbs. They make an assumption that the light bulb has been screwed correctly, then forecast the light.
A: Appraisers do not screw in light bulbs. They watch others do it, interview them about their motivations and then write a report about it
A: Two. The appraiser and the review appraiser.
A: Seven. 1 to research the light bulb comparables, 1 to verify the data, 1 to review USPAP and select the right approach/technique, 2 to write the report, 1 to review the report and 1 to deliver the report.
A: None. If an appraiser was actually caught changing a light bulb (as opposed to evaluating and presenting supporting data that states in an unbiased report that the current light bulb has reached the end of it’s economic life, whether the ROI warrants replacing the bulb, the wattage of the light bulbs in the immediate area and the recommended wattage of a new light bulb, etc.), he could immediately find his license revoked with the added possibility of fines and prison time.
[NOTE: The readers of this survey should be aware of the notorious case of Dr. Hannibal Flyby, found guilty of numerous cases drive-by bulb-wattjackings. He was sentenced to 7 years with hard labor at the infamous off-shore island prison “Le Rat Mort”, located south of the Florida Keys. His only form of entertainment is watching teams of oversized/athletic roaches that play soccer games with the few bread crumbs that fall in the dirt floor of his cell.]
