Appraisal Reviews

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have an effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers performing reviews have to "have the familiarity and skills to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." If you're looking for appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations, just contact Premier Appraisal of SoCal.

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

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality." They "must also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some banks reinforce regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to assist in detecting valuation problems."

In addition to tailoring our work to the processes and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily used for review services, and we'll prepare an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
