Mindi Kitten Appraisals provides appraisal review services that are impartial, efficient, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "should announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions supplement routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or high-value affairs as a control to assist in discovering valuation concerns."

In addition to coordinating our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we can prepare an appraisal review on any one of them.
