Today’s highly regulated, and ever-changing, mortgage environment has created added complexities to appraisal reviews – leading to longer turn-times and delayed closings.
Another issue is that many lenders and AMCs still rely on offline forms and spreadsheets to complete their appraisal reviews or utilize antiquated technologies with limited features and archaic designs that are unable to adapt in real-time to industry updates.
In order to meet the demands of today’s appraisal requirements, and beyond, best practice advises lenders and AMCs to utilize a robust review technology that not only mitigates an ever-growing list of rules, but also promotes the timely completion of appraisal reports through automation.
Global DMS’ MARS®, a standard component of our EVO™ appraisal management software, guarantees these parameters are met by automating your appraisal reviews to help expedite a once grueling task and further ensure compliance.
