Quality Appraisal Reviews by DANIEL I KANDEL

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve, "financial institutions are required to have effective, objective real estate appraisal and evaluation procedures," and that appraisers fulfilling reviews are obligated to "have the proficiency and skillfulness to evaluate compliance with the Federal Reserves appraisal regulations and guidelines." DANIEL I KANDEL provides appraisal review services that are unbiased, efficient, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

If you're in the need of a real estate appraisal review or have questions regarding an appraisal, call DANIEL I KANDEL today.

Appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the risk of the transaction, and whether the means by which the collateral valuation is attained ensures independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Last, The Federal Reserve states that "some financial institutions supplement routine reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a number of their high-risk or larger-value contracts as a method to aid in detecting valuation disputes."
