Quality Appraisal Reviews by James Earp Appraisal Service

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the knowledge and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at James Earp Appraisal Service, we provide appraisal review services that are objective, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact us today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their high-risk or greater-value contracts as a way to aid in detecting valuation issues."

In addition to tailoring our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At James Earp Appraisal Service, we are skilled in all forms of appraisal reviews, review practices and the requirements of review appraisers.
