Getting a second opinion on an appraisal

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 prudent for appraisers doing reviews to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at Motto Appraisal Service, we provide appraisal review services that are independent, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

A review appraisal should find out: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk inherit in the transaction, and whether the process by which the property valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality. The review must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the depth of the appraisal assignment. Lastly, the Fed also notes 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".

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

In addition to adjusting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are mostly used for review services, and we will prepare an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.  Here at Motto Appraisal Service, we're experienced in all types of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the requirements of review appraisers.
