Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that it's the call of appraisers undertaking reviews to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." The Appraisal Source provides appraisal review services that are impartial, expert, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

A review appraisal should verify: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the liability inherit in the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the property valuation is attained ensures independence and quality. They should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the scope of the appraisal assignment. Lastly, the Fed goes on to say that "some banks supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or greater-value transactions as a control to assist in detecting valuation problems".
