If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact us today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-liability or larger-value contracts as a method to assist 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 normally used for review services, and we can produce an appraisal review on any of them.
