-USPAP Standards 3 & 4

An appraisal review is a written report that follows a rigorous process to judge the overall quality of an appraisal. By analyzing the adequacy of appraisal methodologies, verifying the accuracy and completeness of data selection, and assessing the relevance of scope of work in relation to intended use, an appraisal review develops an opinion as to the reasonableness of the value conclusion and the credibility of the appraisal under review. Appraisals lacking in accuracy, relevance or reasonableness, or prompting questions about competence or completeness are good candidates for an appraisal review. Attorneys, bank representatives, lessors, accountants, auditors, and financial officers in both the private and public sphere face increasing exposure to risk because of flawed or invalid appraisals. In these circumstances, an appraisal review can be an effective tool for evaluating an appraisalís level of compliance with professional standards such as those mandated by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and codes promulgated by credentialing associations such as American Society of Appraisers and Appraisers Association of America. Appraisal reviews can be used to reduce financial risk, increase transparency and validity, and encourage confidence and trust surrounding insurance settlements, marriage dissolution, estate affairs and taxation.

-Standards 3 (Developing) and 4 (Reporting)

Appraisal reviews must comply with Standards 3 and 4 of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP, published by the Appraisal Foundation and updated biennially). Standard 3 offers guidance on developing an opinion of credibility and Standard 4 on developing a review report. Both standards provide detailed instructions on how to discuss professional standards of care, adequacy of data, relevance of discussion, reasonableness of value conclusion and how to develop a review report with or without value (depending on the intended use of the appraisal review). Appraisal review reports can reveal disturbing factors, such as errors in calculation, flawed appraisal methodology, thin explanation of scope of work, mistaken identification of a propertyís value features, use of unqualified comparables and unsupported value conclusions.

Relevance, Accuracy and Reliability, Adequacy and Completeness, Consistency, Cohenrence and Balance, Clarity.
