Appraisal Reviews by Astute Appraisals, Inc.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality." They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some banks augment regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or higher-value transactions as a way to aid in exposing valuation issues."

In addition to coordinating our work to the procedures 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 one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
