Appraisal Reviews by Royalty Appraisals Inc.

As said in an announcement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that it's the responsibility of appraisers preparing reviews to "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Royalty Appraisals Inc. provides appraisal review services that are objective, qualified, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

The purpose of appraisal reviews are to determine: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is well-suited for the transaction, the risk inherit in the transaction, and whether the practices by which the real estate valuation is obtained guarantees independence and quality. Moreover, they should denote whether the appraisal or evaluation report is consistent with the engagement letter, which describes the capacity of the appraisal assignment. The Fed 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".
