Qualified Appraisal Reviews with Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers doing reviews should "have the ability and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we provide appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, contact us today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or high-value dealings as a method to assist in detecting valuation issues."
