Appraisal Reviews

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers doing reviews must "have the familiarity and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Draheim Appraisal Services, LLC provides appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, contact us today.

Appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to aid in addressing valuation problems."

In addition to coordinating our work to the forms and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are widely used for review services, and we can produce 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 Draheim Appraisal Services, LLC, we are trained in all forms of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the requirements of review appraisers.
