As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or high-value transactions as a method to assist in uncovering valuation dilemmas."

In addition to conforming our work to the practices and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are generally used for review services, and we'll 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. Here at Bain & Associates, Inc., we're trained in all types of appraisal reviews, review practices and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
