Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the ability and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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

Appraisal reviews "should find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or higher-value affairs as a control to assist in discovering valuation concerns."

In addition to adjusting 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 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. Here at Columbus Appraisal Company, LLC, we are trained in every form of appraisal review, review process and the requirements of review appraisers.
