Commercial and Residential Reviews

Commercial and Residential Appraisal Reviews


VMG Technical Review: Experienced commercial and/or residential appraisers will perform a review of the appraisal for Interagency Appraisal and Evaluation Guidelines, compliance with USPAP, applicable state laws, the specific requirements or instructions that are required by an institution’s appraisal policy, obvious errors, and any other special order instructions. Should something be unclear, need correction, or something pertinent has been left out, the VMG reviewer will contact the appraiser and make a request for corrections or revisions. Appraisal compliance considering regulatory expectations is a key factor of the technical review.

VMG Desktop Review: The same items are covered as in the technical review but, in addition, the review appraiser also performs independent research to verify the appraiser’s comparable data and to see if any applicable market data is found that may lead to a different conclusion of value. A desktop review will indicate a recommended action to accept as-is, accept after some revisions are made or to reject the appraisal completely and will provide a detailed reason for the review appraiser recommendation. Appraisal compliance considering regulatory expectations is a key factor of the desktop review.
