Appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks augment routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or greater-value affairs as a channel to aid in revealing valuation problems."

In addition to adjusting our work to the forms and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we will develop an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At The Appraisal Firm, we're experienced in every kind of appraisal review, review practice and the obligations of review appraisers.
