After what’s been a crazy couple years in the mortgage industry, many lenders, credit unions, AMCs, and appraisal firms have felt the crunch that large volumes can bring to one’s real estate appraisal process – especially amidst ever-evolving rules and guidelines.
Though it’s true that appraiser attrition remains a key issue, next-gen appraisal management technologies help bridge the gap, allowing these entities to better manage their appraisal workflows through innovative tools and workflow automation that promote a digital process. One such technology is Global DMS’ EVO™ platform, which reduces turn times through proven features and intelligent automation.
