Appraisal reviews "should conclude whether the appraisal or evaluation is suitable for the transaction, the uncertainty of the transaction, and whether the processes by which the collateral valuation is acquired guarantees independence and quality," as stated by the Federal Reserve. In addition, they "should signify whether the appraisal or evaluation report matches the letter of engagement, which describes the range of the appraisal assignment." Lastly, the Federal Reserve states that "some institutions add regular reviews with post-funding assessments of appraisal quality for any of their higher-risk or higher-value transactions as a control to aid in exposing valuation concerns."
