Qualified Appraisal Reviews by B & J APPRAISALS, INC.

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews must "have the knowledge and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at B & J APPRAISALS, INC., we provide appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you have questions in reference to an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, contact us today.

Appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "must signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or greater-value dealings as a control to assist in addressing valuation issues."
