Quality Appraisal Reviews with ARK Appraisal Services, LLC

As said in a statement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that appraisers engaged in reviews have to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." At ARK Appraisal Services, LLC, we provide appraisal review services that are impartial, efficient, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's rules.

The purpose of appraisal reviews are to find out: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the liability inherit in the transaction, and whether the manners by which the property valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality. They must also signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report is in line with the engagement letter, which describes the depth of the appraisal assignment. The Federal Reserve states 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".
