If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, call us today.

Appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or larger-value contracts as a method to assist in uncovering valuation concerns."

In addition to adjusting our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we can develop an appraisal review on any one of them.
