According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation plans," and that appraisers doing reviews must "have the knowledge and skillfulness to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088, we provide appraisal review services that are impartial, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you have questions about an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, call Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "must demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions supplement regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or high-value transactions as a method to assist in exposing valuation issues."
