Expert Appraisal Reviews with The Appraisal Firm

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews are obligated to "have the proficiency and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." The Appraisal Firm provides appraisal review services that are impartial, expert, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, call The Appraisal Firm today.

Appraisal reviews "must figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or higher-value transactions as a method to assist in detecting valuation complications."

In addition to adapting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are usually used for review services, and we'll formulate an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At The Appraisal Firm, we're trained in all forms of appraisal reviews, review practices and the obligations of review appraisers.
