Experienced Appraisal Reviews by DANIEL I KANDEL

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers performing reviews have to "have the familiarity and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." If you need appraisal review services that are unbiased, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations, contact DANIEL I KANDEL.

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

Appraisal reviews "must figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks add regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-liability or larger-value dealings as a way to assist in exposing valuation disputes."

In addition to coordinating our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily used for review services, and we'll prepare an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at DANIEL I KANDEL, we're trained in every type of appraisal review, review process and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
