Experienced Appraisal Reviews by Kent & Associates Appraisal

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers completing reviews must "have the knowledge and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." At Kent & Associates Appraisal, we provide appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact Kent & Associates Appraisal today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some financial institutions add regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their high-risk or large-value dealings as a means to aid in addressing valuation disputes."

In addition to conforming our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we'll formulate an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Kent & Associates Appraisal, we're trained in every kind of appraisal review, review process and the obligations of review appraisers.
