James Earp Appraisal Service Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews are obligated to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." James Earp Appraisal Service provides appraisal review services that are unbiased, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, contact James Earp Appraisal Service today.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or large-value affairs as a method to assist in revealing valuation disputes."

In addition to adjusting 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 develop 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 James Earp Appraisal Service, we are qualified in all types of appraisal reviews, review practices and the obligations of review appraisers.
