As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which sets forth the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some banks supplement routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for any of their higher-liability or higher-value transactions as a means to assist in uncovering valuation issues."

In addition to tailoring our work to the processes and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are mostly used for review services, and we can develop an appraisal review on any one of them.
