REVARI (Real Estate Valuation and Research Inc.) Appraisal Reviews

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers performing reviews must "have the familiarity and skills to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." For appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines, contact REVARI (Real Estate Valuation and Research Inc.).

Appraisal reviews "must determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is appropriate for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. Moreover, they "should indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some financial institutions supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for some of their high-liability or large-value transactions as a control to assist in addressing valuation concerns."

In addition to coordinating our work to the processes and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we can prepare an appraisal review on any one of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
