Appraisal reviews "ought to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which sets forth the capacity of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or larger-value dealings as a means to aid in revealing valuation dilemmas."

In addition to tailoring 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 will produce an appraisal review on any of them.
