Appraisal Reviews by Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers doing reviews should "have the familiarity and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." Timeline Appraisal Services, LLC provides appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you have questions in reference to an appraisal, or if you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review, call us today.

According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the procedures by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality." They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions augment periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or large-value transactions as a method to assist in identifying valuation concerns."

In addition to coordinating our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we can produce an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
