Quality Appraisal Reviews with Barnes Appraisal Company

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers completing reviews must "have the knowledge and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Barnes Appraisal Company 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 regarding an appraisal, contact Barnes Appraisal Company today.

The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality." They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or higher-value transactions as a control to aid in addressing valuation disputes."
