Appraisal Reviews with REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC

If you're looking for appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's regulations, just contact REID E. CHOATE & ASSOCIATES, LLC.

Appraisal reviews "ought to verify whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is collected guarantees independence and quality," the Federal Reserve says. They "should also demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is even with the engagement letter, which describes the outlook of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve says that "some institutions reinforce periodic reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-liability or large-value contracts as a channel to aid in uncovering valuation complications."
