Experienced Appraisal Reviews with Concra Appraisal Associates

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that it's the expectation of appraisers doing reviews to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." At Concra Appraisal Associates, we provide appraisal review services that are objective, efficient, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

A review appraisal should reveal: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the exposure inherit in the transaction, and whether the means by which the property valuation is acquired ensures independence and quality. They must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the reach of the appraisal assignment. The Fed also goes on to say 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".
