Appraisal reviews "should decide whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the methods by which the collateral valuation is collected ensures independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some banks add regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or higher-value contracts as a method to aid in revealing valuation problems."

They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form. At Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC, we're trained in every type of appraisal review, review process and the requirements of review appraisers.
