Best-Practice for Sound Reporting: Does Your Appraisal Software Provide these 4 Crucial Items?As refinances and increased market demand continue to push mortgage originations to all-time highs, the need for instant visibility over one’s processes has become even more essential in order to help manage these larger loan volumes.

Nowhere is this more apparent than with real estate appraisals, in which mortgage lenders and AMCs must take all appropriate steps to ensure that their valuation process is both efficient and effective to help prevent unwanted delays. However, achieving complete visibility over this intricate process is near impossible without the use of a robust and configurable reporting tool that promotes automation.

To have the best-of-the-best, it’s important to utilize an appraisal management technology that’s equipped with the following reporting capabilities:

  1. Complete configurability, with custom reporting that’s able to capture data from any field within the system.
  2. The ability to run real-time reports on your various appraisal processes and communications.
  3. The ability to understand your average appraisal turn-times.
  4. Automated management reports that can be delivered as needed to who you want, when you want.
