If you have questions in reference to an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, contact us today.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or larger-value contracts as a method to assist in uncovering valuation dilemmas."
