Severson Appraisal Service Appraisal Reviews

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers performing reviews should "have the knowledge and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Severson Appraisal Service provides appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

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

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions reinforce routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or larger-value affairs as a way to aid in uncovering valuation problems."

In addition to adapting our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are generally used for review services, and we will develop an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Severson Appraisal Service, we're experienced in every form of appraisal review, review procedure and the obligations of review appraisers.
