If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions about an appraisal, contact DANIEL I KANDEL today.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or higher-value contracts as a way to assist in discovering valuation issues."

In addition to adapting our work to the processes and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily used for review services, and we'll develop an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At DANIEL I KANDEL, we're skilled in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the responsibilities of review appraisers.

We realize what the most common inadequacies are, especially in our home market, as well as what constitutes a quality appraisal.
