Graham Appraisal provides appraisal review services that are objective, expert, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

If you have questions regarding an appraisal, or if you need a real estate appraisal review, call Graham Appraisal today.

As stated by the Federal Reserve, appraisal reviews "have to conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality." They "must also denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the scope of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve says that "some financial institutions supplement periodic reviews with post-funding surveys of appraisal quality for a few of their high-liability or higher-value contracts as a control to help in revealing valuation problems."

In addition to adjusting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are normally used for review services, and we will produce an appraisal review on any one of them.
