Getting a second opinion on an appraisal

According to an announcement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that appraisers doing reviews should "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Gorelick Appraisals, Inc. provides appraisal review services that are objective, efficient, professional and square with the Federal Reserve's regulations.

The purpose of appraisal reviews are to verify: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the exposure inherit in the transaction, and whether the method by which the property valuation is obtained ensures independence and quality. The review must also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment. Lastly, the Federal Reserve also says that "some banks supplement routine reviews with post-funding evaluations of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or greater-value transactions as a control to assist in detecting valuation problems".
