Appraisal Reviews by Pyramid Appraisals, Inc.

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers performing reviews should "have the ability and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." At Pyramid Appraisals, Inc., we provide appraisal review services that are objective, expert, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, contact us today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "must figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the actions by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality." In addition, they "must announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks reinforce routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or larger-value contracts as a channel to help in addressing valuation dilemmas."

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