Polaris Real Estate & Appraisal, Inc. Appraisal Reviews

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have an effective, impartial real estate appraisal and evaluation program," and that appraisers performing reviews have to "have the ability and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." At Polaris Real Estate & Appraisal, Inc., we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, expert, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

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 "have to find out whether the appraisal or evaluation is relevant for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "must demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks reinforce regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or larger-value affairs as a way to aid in exposing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to conforming our work to the procedures and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are largely 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 Polaris Real Estate & Appraisal, Inc., we are qualified in every kind of appraisal review, review practice and the requirements of review appraisers.
