The Federal Reserve says appraisal reviews "should figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is fitting for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality." Moreover, they "must demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the letter of engagement, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also states that "some institutions augment typical reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or greater-value dealings as a means to help in addressing valuation concerns."

In addition to adjusting our work to the regulations and guidelines of our review clients, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we will produce an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
