Quality Appraisal Reviews by Mindi Kitten Appraisals

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews have to "have the ability and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at Mindi Kitten Appraisals, we provide appraisal review services that are independent, qualified, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

If you need a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, call us today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some institutions augment routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their high-liability or larger-value contracts as a way to help in identifying valuation concerns."

In addition to tailoring our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we'll produce an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Mindi Kitten Appraisals, we're trained in all types of appraisal reviews, review processes and the obligations of review appraisers.
