Experienced Appraisal Reviews by Appraisal-One

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers performing reviews should "have the familiarity and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at Appraisal-One, we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions in reference to an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, contact us today.

Appraisal reviews "ought to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some banks augment periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their high-risk or large-value dealings as a way to assist in detecting valuation dilemmas."

In addition to adapting our work to the forms and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we'll produce 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 Appraisal-One, we are trained in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the requirements of review appraisers.

Appraisal-One realizes what constitutes a quality appraisal and what the greatest inadequacies are, especially in our home market. We're also sufficiently experienced to admit that our competition in our market are capable of good work. The Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) govern appraisal reviews as well as appraisal reports, and you can rely on Appraisal-One to ethically examine appraisal reports carried out by others. And those others could be examining our work, too!
