Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that it's the duty of appraisers fulfilling reviews to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Lake Area Appraisal Firm provides appraisal review services that are objective, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

The purpose of appraisal reviews are to find out: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk inherit in the transaction, and whether the processes by which the real estate valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality. In addition, they must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment. Lastly, the Federal Reserve also goes on to say that "some banks supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or greater-value transactions as a control to assist in detecting valuation problems".
