Appraisal Reviews

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers doing reviews must "have the knowledge and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Saxton Appraisals, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some banks add routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or larger-value dealings as a means to assist in detecting valuation dilemmas."

In addition to coordinating our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily 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 Saxton Appraisals, Inc., we're experienced in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the requirements of review appraisers.
