Qualified Appraisal Reviews by Tierney Appraisals

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers completing reviews are obligated to "have the ability and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at Tierney Appraisals, we provide appraisal review services that are independent, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

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

Appraisal reviews "must verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some institutions supplement routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or greater-value contracts as a control to assist in exposing valuation disputes."

In addition to adapting our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we can develop 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 Tierney Appraisals, we're skilled in all forms of appraisal reviews, review processes and the requirements of review appraisers.
