Appraisal Reviews with Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers doing reviews must "have the proficiency and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." At Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we provide appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

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

Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or large-value transactions as a means to aid in uncovering valuation complications."

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're trained in every type of appraisal review, review process and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
