The Department of Justice announced yesterday they have initiated a review of anti- trust concerns with Big Tech Companies. From the Wall Street Journal article, the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice collaborated on who would take the lead on this investigation. Also pointed out in the article, both the FTC and DOJ are pursuing separate investigations of Big Tech Companies. Although CoreLogic was not named as an initial target, we suspect it is just a matter of time before they are included.
Frank Garay and Brian Stevens did a short 6 minute video on the subject which will give you the highlights.

Membership to VaCAP renews each June and remains at $84 per year. We represent Virginia appraisers as one of the leading coalitions within the Network of State Appraisal Organizations, currently 31 members strong. We are members of the Appraisal Foundation Advisory Council, attend meetings of the Association of Appraiser Regulatory Officials and attend State Appraisal Board Meetings. We initiate and lobby for legislative action when necessary and communicate with State and Federal Representatives on relevant issues concerning the profession.
Perhaps the most noticed benefit of VaCAP is our communication. We regularly send out information to our members and others in our database on issues important to the profession. We continue to update our Facebook page, LinkedIn page and have recently established a Twitter account. Our communications have been called “cutting edge and extremely timely” by several other appraisal organizations. Although our communications are copywritten, we encourage everyone to share, just give VaCAP credit please.
Once again, membership can be renewed online from our website. We have streamlined the application and provided a direct link for payment.
Thank You for Being Part of VaCAP!
