Appraisal reviews "ought to determine whether the appraisal or evaluation is pertinent for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the process by which the collateral valuation is accomplished ensures independence and quality," according to the Federal Reserve. They "should also announce whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the engagement letter, which sets forth the range of the appraisal assignment." The Federal Reserve also notes that "some banks add regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for some of their higher-risk or high-value affairs as a way to help in exposing valuation disputes."

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