Appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the engagement letter, which sets forth the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some banks augment typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or larger-value dealings as a method to aid in addressing valuation concerns."

In addition to adjusting our work to the practices and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are usually used for review services, and we can produce an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
