Our Evaluations are prepared by our staff of highly educated, well-trained Evaluators who are experienced in performing evaluations on all property types. Each report is analyzed by one of our Review Appraisers with 20-30 years experience before being submitted to your bank.
Our reviews encompass not only checking for adherence to ASTM standards, but also an analysis of the conclusions and recommendations presented in the assessment, a thorough review of all materials, findings, and exhibits provided in the report, a review of the environmental consultant’s qualifications (if Client ordered), and an analysis of the governmental record research to determine that the right conclusions have been made.
CES will provide you a list of issues with the appraisal. This information is provided to the appraiser for consideration. If the appraiser revises the report and CES agrees with the changes, then the review is completed. If CES still cannot approve the appraisal, CES will advise you of the rejection and offer you the choice of ordering a new appraisal or having CES modify the value.
