Quality Appraisal Reviews with Elite Appraisal Services

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers doing reviews should "have the knowledge and skillfulness to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." For appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines, contact Elite Appraisal Services.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, call Elite Appraisal Services today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks augment periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their high-liability or high-value contracts as a way to aid in identifying valuation dilemmas."

In addition to coordinating our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we will formulate an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at Elite Appraisal Services, we are trained in all forms of appraisal reviews, review processes and the obligations of review appraisers.
