Appraisal Reviews with Mindi Kitten Appraisals

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers completing reviews have to "have the familiarity and skillfulness to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Mindi Kitten Appraisals provides appraisal review services that are impartial, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

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 "should verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality." Moreover, they "should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some institutions add periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or larger-value transactions as a method to help in identifying valuation disputes."
