Getting a second opinion on an appraisal

As stated in an announcement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that appraisers fulfilling reviews should "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." a la mode, inc. - tjhliveapprent provides appraisal review services that are objective, expert, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

A review appraisal should find out: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the exposure inherit in the transaction, and whether the actions by which the real estate valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality. In addition, they must denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which gives an account of the outlook of the appraisal assignment. The Fed also says 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".
