At Shamrock Appraisals, Inc., we provide appraisal review services that are unbiased, qualified, professional and in line with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

Appraisal reviews "must conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is applicable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the practices by which the collateral valuation is accomplished guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. They "must also indicate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is compatible with the engagement letter, which gives an account of the extent of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some banks augment typical reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for a few of their higher-risk or large-value dealings as a means to aid in discovering valuation issues."

In addition to tailoring our work to the processes and guidelines of our review customers, there are four Fannie Mae forms that are typically used for review services, and we will prepare an appraisal review on any of them. They include an appraisal "desk" review, a "field" review, a "short" form and a "narrative" form.
