Experienced Appraisal Reviews by The August Group Inc.

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the ability and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at The August Group Inc., we provide appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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

Appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "must also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or large-value dealings as a means to assist in addressing valuation disputes."

In addition to coordinating our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we can 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.
