Experienced Appraisal Reviews by Astute Appraisals, Inc.

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers performing reviews should "have the familiarity and skills to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Astute Appraisals, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

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

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions add typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or greater-value affairs as a way to help in exposing valuation dilemmas."
