Qualified Appraisal Reviews by B & J APPRAISALS, INC.

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the knowledge and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." B & J APPRAISALS, INC. provides appraisal review services that are impartial, expert, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." They "must also show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks augment periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-risk or larger-value transactions as a way to assist in detecting valuation issues."
