Dawson Appraisal Inc. Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers completing reviews should "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Dawson Appraisal Inc. provides appraisal review services that are objective, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

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

Appraisal reviews "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must show whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions supplement typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or larger-value dealings as a method to aid in revealing valuation issues."

In addition to conforming 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'll 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 every type of appraisal review, review practice and the obligations of review appraisers.
