Quality Appraisal Reviews by Barnes Appraisal Company

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers doing reviews have to "have the ability and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." At Barnes Appraisal Company, we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, call Barnes Appraisal Company today.

Appraisal reviews "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their high-risk or large-value dealings as a means to assist in addressing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to adapting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are primarily 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. Here at Barnes Appraisal Company, we're skilled in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review practices and the obligations of review appraisers.
