Yup, it's called "steering" and it's considered fraud... your lender may give an estimate of the property's value to the appraiser but cannot make payment on the appraisal contingent upon getting a certain value, or refuse to send future business to the appraiser if a certain value isn't reached, etc. Now if there are material items that would give the home more value that the appraiser missed in the original appraisal, that is worth the appraiser taking a second look at the value.

Reputable appraisers wouldn't either.

Now that you've explained the situation in more detail it sounds better. There has been times where I've ordered appraisals and the value comes in way off, so we order a second one to get another opinion and the value comes in more accurately... so we use the more accurate appraisal.

Further more he used the county assessments to come up with his figures so the lo I was working with sent another guy to do the appraisal over ( which included the improvements ) so the new figures were much better. They were pushing me for an ARM loan that I refused to do so I refi'd with another mortgage co.All I'm saying is who ever did your appraisal may not have included some details of the home/property that would increase the appraisal/value of your home.
