Appraisal Reviews by Astute Appraisals, Inc.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." They "should also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some financial institutions supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to assist in revealing valuation complications."

In addition to adapting our work to the processes and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we'll 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.
