Appraisal Reviews

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the familiarity and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." All City Appraisal provides appraisal review services that are objective, expert, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions in reference to an appraisal, call All City Appraisal today.

Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "must also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some banks reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-risk or high-value affairs as a channel to aid in uncovering valuation problems."
