According to the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "ought to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." They "must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some institutions add regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or greater-value dealings as a way to assist in revealing valuation disputes."

In addition to adjusting our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we can prepare an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Dawson Appraisal Inc., we are trained in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review processes and the responsibilities of review appraisers.
