Appraisal reviews "ought to verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "must also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or large-value transactions as a method to aid in revealing valuation issues."

In addition to tailoring our work to the processes and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are mostly used for review services, and we will formulate an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at Premier Appraisal of SoCal, we are qualified in every form of appraisal review, review procedure and the requirements of review appraisers.
