Global DMS’ valuation management software known as eTrac® has officially been integrated with DataQuick®, a provider of advanced real estate information solutions that are powered by data, analytics, and decisioning. This new integration taps DataQuick’s Collateral Validation analytics to help render accurate valuations by utilizing in-depth area-based metrics, trending, and other important factors that are not typically taken into account when underwriting loans.
Global DMS’ eTrac System allows organizations to cost effectively and compliantly manage the entire appraisal management process from vendor management to appraisal ordering, assignment, tracking, reviews, delivery, and reporting. DataQuick’s Collateral Validation solution enhances the confirmation of property valuations by ensuring that specific values fall within acceptable ranges, which involves the use of key data elements that provide added market intelligence.
This includes analyzing and making use of public data sources, such as multiple listing service data (MLS), industry-leading automated valuation models (AVMs), neighborhood-level house pricing indexes (HPIs), inventory and sales trends metrics, foreclosure data, various housing analytics, and other relevant data elements. The results of the data is interpreted into meaningful information and then incorporated into Global DMS’ valuation determination – producing a highly accurate, quality appraisal.
“Incorporating DataQuick’s solution into our valuations offering, such as automated review products and hybrid valuations that combine manual appraisal know-how and data analytics, allows us to provide unique solutions that are immediately available to our growing customer base,” said Vladimir Bien-Aime, President and CEO of Global DMS.
