Your Bundled Toolkit Includes:
- Appraisal Score*
Evaluate how closely the appraisal complies with FNC’s powerful Generally Accepted Appraisal Rules™ (GAAR®). A score (0-1,000),
generated from the results, gives reviewers a quick reference point; the higher the score, the stronger the compliance. Any broken
rules are listed on a summary report, so you can see the details that need closer attention. Manually reviewing appraisals is costly
and time consuming, and not all appraisals require the same level of review. Being able to instantly identify potentially weak or
poorly supported appraisals and focusing efforts only on those can mean significant savings in both time and money.
- Property Scan
Streamline multiple data sources for the subject and comparables into one thorough analysis report. Property Scan provides real property
characteristics, legal description, sales history, county tax information, recent and historical comparable sales, and much more.
- QC Vigilance
Quickly gauge the quality of the appraisal backing a loan by assessing the comparables selected. With QCV, users can compare the subject
property and comparables listed on the appraisal to those found in the National Collateral Database™ and then generate a value range, an
interactive map plotting the subject and comparables, and a detailed report.
FNC’s Generally Accepted Appraisal Rules™ (GAAR®) technology is the foundation on which Appraisal Score is built,
enabling you to automate and streamline the review of appraisal reports. GAAR is comprised of two rule sets: Compliance
and Risk. The Compliance rule set reviews appraisals for regulatory and GSE compliance, including Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac guidelines, while GAAR Risk reviews appraisals according to industry best practices, helping lenders mitigate risk
faster and more consistently than a manual review.
