Kent & Associates Appraisal Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the ability and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." At Kent & Associates Appraisal, we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, expert, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions augment periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their high-liability or high-value transactions as a control to help in addressing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to tailoring our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are widely used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at Kent & Associates Appraisal, we're qualified in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review processes and the obligations of review appraisers.
