Quality Appraisal Reviews by First Appraisal Services

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the familiarity and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." For appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines, just contact First Appraisal Services.

Appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions add routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or greater-value dealings as a channel to assist in identifying valuation issues."

In addition to tailoring our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at First Appraisal Services, we're trained in every form of appraisal review, review practice and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
