Expert Appraisal Reviews with Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc.

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are obligated to have effective, unbiased real estate appraisal and evaluation programs," and that appraisers completing reviews are obligated to "have the knowledge and expertise to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal rules and guidelines." Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are independent, expert, professional and in accordance with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

Appraisal reviews "have to figure out whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the liability of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "should also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which describes the extent of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also says that "some financial institutions reinforce regular reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for a number of their higher-liability or large-value affairs as a control to assist in addressing valuation concerns."
