Report Formats                                                                                                                                  Restricted Appraisal Report - this can vary from a verbal estimate of value to a brief narrative report, and is an option when there is only one intended user of the appraisal report.  This is the most common type of appraisal report when services are performed directly for a property owner, prospective buyer or real estate broker. 
Appraisal Report - the appraisal report format provides a detailed discussion or summary of the elements of the report including the information analyzed, appraisal methods and techniques employed, the reasoning that supports the analyses, opinions and conclusions. This report type will typically range from 40 to 100 pages excluding Addenda.  A more comprehensive format may be more appropriate for some high-value property.                                                                                       Appraisal Review - this is a report developing and communicating an opinion about the quality of another appraiser's work.                                                                                                                Evaluation or BPO - this very brief valuation report typically involves a limited-scope of work in which one or more approaches to value are excluded.  This report can be used by banks and other lenders "for transactions that qualify for the appraisal threshold exemption, business loan exemption, or subsequent transaction exemption."
