Appraisal Reviews

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers completing reviews should "have the ability and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Bain & Associates, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are independent, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact Bain & Associates, Inc. today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or higher-value transactions as a channel to help in exposing valuation dilemmas."
