Appraisal reviews "have to decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedure by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some banks augment routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or large-value transactions as a way to help in revealing valuation issues."

In addition to coordinating 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 formulate an appraisal review on any one of them.

Here at James Earp Appraisal Service, we're trained in every form of appraisal review, review process and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
