Appraisal Reviews with Allatoona Appraisal

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the familiarity and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Allatoona Appraisal provides appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions about an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, call Allatoona Appraisal today.

Appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some banks supplement regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or high-value transactions as a way to help in addressing valuation complications."
