Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the proficiency and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." If you need appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations, contact Collateral Risk Associates LLC.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, call Collateral Risk Associates LLC today.

Appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or greater-value transactions as a method to assist in detecting valuation disputes."
