As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or higher-value affairs as a way to help in detecting valuation concerns."

In addition to coordinating our work to the processes and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are usually used for review services, and we can prepare 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 Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we're trained in every form of appraisal review, review process and the obligations of review appraisers.
