Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions reinforce routine reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-risk or large-value transactions as a means to aid in discovering valuation complications."

In addition to conforming our work to the forms and guidelines of our review clients, 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. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. Here at Property Valuation Group, we are experienced in every form of appraisal review, review process and the obligations of review appraisers.
