Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC provides appraisal review services that are unbiased, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's rules.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions add regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or large-value affairs as a means to help in exposing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to coordinating our work to the processes 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 one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we are trained in all forms of appraisal reviews, review practices and the requirements of review appraisers.
