Appraisal services for mortgage lenders, banks and credit unions.
Active risk reduction strategy and compliance
Superior vendor and risk management in the valuation industry cannot come from the inclusion of every appraisal vendor. In fact, it can only be achieved with the selection of a certain number of available vendors. Simply put; if your goal is to have the highest quality appraisal product that enables you to reliably avoid, identify, measure, and reduce the risks associated with residential properties while assuring full compliance with all federal and state regulations and applicable laws; then the only one way to achieve this goal is with the best vendors available in the marketplace.
Reducing risk in valuations starts and ends with working with professionals that are not only good at what they do but are ethical, professional, and confident in what they do. The best appraisers utilize the best resources, education, and creative thinking to solve the most common to the most complex appraisal problems.
Active and effective appraiser screening
You need to identify the highest quality appraisers in a given location; offer them truly customary and reasonable fees; provide them with the respect, assistance, and resources that they need to perform their assignments professionally and independently; and allow them to achieve success by rewarding them for proven efforts in caring for what they do and upholding a certain ethical standard for the industry.
The appraisers reward comes in the form of a stable, respectful, personable, and professional relationship; a reliable AMC operations staff with local knowledge that holds itself accountable throughout the order management process; compensation that is commensurate with the assignment; and technology that truly allows the best-qualified appraisers to separate themselves from the pack with reliable data tracking and scoring systems that actually work and don’t adversely penalize the better performing and most qualified appraisers.
