The August Group Inc. Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the familiarity and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." The August Group Inc. provides appraisal review services that are impartial, expert, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions in reference to an appraisal, call The August Group Inc. today.

Appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some banks add regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or high-value affairs as a way to help in discovering valuation disputes."

In addition to tailoring our work to the practices and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are usually used for review services, and we'll prepare an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At The August Group Inc., we're trained in all types of appraisal reviews, review processes and the requirements of review appraisers.
