Quality Appraisal Reviews by Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews should "have the proficiency and skills to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC provides appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's rules.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some financial institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or greater-value dealings as a control to aid in exposing valuation complications."
