Appraisal Reviews with Rehkemper Brothers, LLC

According to a statement by the Federal Reserve (click here), "financial institutions must have an effective, independent real estate appraisal and evaluation program" and that appraisers producing reviews must "have the knowledge and expertise to assess compliance with the Federal Reserve's appraisal regulations and guidelines." Rehkemper Brothers, LLC provides appraisal review services that are impartial, efficient, professional and compliant with the Federal Reserve's guidelines.

A review appraisal should verify: whether the original appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the risk inherit in the transaction, and whether the method by which the collateral valuation is attained guarantees independence and quality. Moreover, they should demonstrate whether the appraisal or evaluation report is true to the letter of engagement, which describes the scope of the appraisal assignment. The Federal Reserve also goes on to say 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".
