Recognizing the range of services available, and making the distinction between conventional, nontraditional and complex services can dramatically increase income to the bottom line and reduce both operating an opportunity cost.

Federal Appraisal & Consulting LLC provides a full array of conventional appraisal and consulting services.  What makes Federal Appraisal unique is that we provide numerous nontraditional and complex services.  Broadly speaking, conventional appraisal services include appraisals written for mortgage underwriting purposes for banks.  While representing the bulk of the appraisal industry, conventional appraisal services cannot adequately serve the needs of many important clients.  For example, a mortgage underwriting appraisal would not be appropriate for most expert testimony/legal settings.  A mortgage appraisal would be prohibitively expensive for many tax and audit (accounting) needs.  Further, for corporations conducting due diligence for possible purchase or disposition, a mortgage appraisal would not answer some of the basic questions posed by the situation.

To best present the Federal Appraisal & Consulting LLC services, we have created various matrices of services and clients, and present them into pages referenced below.

Services by USPAP

Federal Appraisal & Consulting LLC provides a full array of USPAP and non-USPAP appraisal and consulting services. 
Nearly all conventional appraisal services are subject to the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP).  When the law requires a USPAP appraisal, the client must have a USPAP compliant appraisal, which is certified by the state licensed or certified appraiser.  Appraisals for mortgage underwriting purposes are the most common type of USPAP appraisal.  It should be noted, however, that USPAP prescribes a number of appraisal services, and when the law does not require a USPAP appraisal, clients have still more options.
Knowing when a USPAP appraisal service is needed and when it is not, and what type of USPAP appraisal to order can save clients considerably on fees and on opportunity costs from inappropriate business decisions based on ill fitting appraisal and consulting services.
