Getting a second opinion on an appraisal

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that appraisers completing reviews have to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Here at Keim Appraisals, we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

The purpose of appraisal reviews are to find out: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the exposure inherit in the transaction, and whether the method by which the property valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality. Moreover, they should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the extent of the appraisal assignment. The Fed notes that "some banks supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or greater-value transactions as a control to assist in detecting valuation problems".
