I received an order for a desk review on the 2006 form - its a whopper of an appraisal. GLA was 1,800 sq. ft., appraiser used 1 comp at 2,300 sq. ft. and all others (7 more) were well over 3,000 sq. ft. The appraiser stated that she understood that the size was not bracketed, however, it's not always possible, blah, blah, blah these are the best comparables available. I'm checking the box: "have another appraisal prepared by someone else." and giving the reasons for it. My question is in regards to the "reveiwers recommendation" field concerning value. I could not come close to rendering a value opinion unless I perform a whole new appraisal on this property, which I don't think is in the scope of review, which I quote in full: "The scope of this review is limited to the information being provided by the original appraiser; form an opinion as to the apparent adequacy and relevance of the data and the propriety of any adjustments to the data; form an opinion as the appropriateness of the appraisal methods and techniques used and develop the reasons for any disagreement; form an opnion as the whether the analyses, opinions, and conclusions in the report under review are appropriate and reasonable, and develop the reasons for any disagreement." I don't read that I am supposed to render an opinion (or recommendation) of value...am I missing something?
