Appraisal Reviews

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers completing reviews are obligated to "have the ability and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." For appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's rules, look no further than Nordquist Appraisal LLC.

Appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or larger-value contracts as a means to assist in detecting valuation issues."
