Tierney Appraisals Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews must "have the proficiency and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Tierney Appraisals provides appraisal review services that are independent, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, contact Tierney Appraisals today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "must indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some banks supplement regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their high-liability or larger-value transactions as a method to assist in exposing valuation concerns."

In addition to coordinating our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are mostly 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 Tierney Appraisals, we are trained in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review practices and the obligations of review appraisers.
