Expert Appraisal Reviews with DANIEL I KANDEL

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers completing reviews are obligated to "have the proficiency and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." DANIEL I KANDEL provides appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

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

Appraisal reviews "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or larger-value contracts as a control to help in identifying valuation concerns."

In addition to adjusting our work to the forms and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are generally used for review services, and we'll prepare an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At DANIEL I KANDEL, we're experienced in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review practices and the requirements of review appraisers.
