Experienced Appraisal Reviews with Launer & Associates

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 fulfilling reviews should "have the proficiency and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Here at Launer & Associates, we provide appraisal review services that are objective, expert, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

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

Appraisal reviews "must decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the manners by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some institutions add regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or high-value dealings as a means to aid in addressing valuation disputes."

In addition to conforming our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely used for review services, and we'll 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. Here at Launer & Associates, we're skilled in all kinds of appraisal reviews, review procedures and the obligations of review appraisers.
