Quality Appraisal Reviews with Weaver Appraisal Group

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers performing reviews have to "have the proficiency and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Weaver Appraisal Group provides appraisal review services that are independent, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact Weaver Appraisal Group today.

Appraisal reviews "should find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. In addition, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some banks add periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or larger-value contracts as a channel to assist in discovering valuation dilemmas."

In addition to adapting our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we can 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. At Weaver Appraisal Group, we are trained in every type of appraisal review, review procedure and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
