Experienced Appraisal Reviews with O'Brien Appraisal Group

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation plan," and that appraisers completing reviews are obligated to "have the ability and expertise to determine compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." O'Brien Appraisal Group provides appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you have questions in reference to an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, contact O'Brien Appraisal Group today.

The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "must figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the danger of the transaction, and whether the manner by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality." They "must also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve notes that "some financial institutions add typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for any of their high-liability or greater-value contracts as a control to aid in uncovering valuation complications."
