I can assure you that is not the norm anymore. Maybe back in 2004 perhaps to 2006 in some areas. But, most lenders now require the full appraisal plus that appraisal to be reviewed by others to ascertain the validity of the dollar figure and comparable properties used from my experience. (not just Florida, I own a home just outside of DC also)
