Fannie Mae’s lender partners rely on appraisers to provide them with thorough, accurate, and objective appraisal reports that result in reliable opinions of market value so they can make prudent underwriting decisions. The appraisal is used to judge the property’s acceptability for the mortgage loan requested in view of its value and marketability.
