Appraisal Firewall is a secure, online appraisal routing and communications technology tool that lets lenders keep their established relationships by helping them stay compliant with the Home Valuation Code of Conduct (HVCC).
With Appraisal Firewall, lenders can choose to continue to work with their established appraiser panels, or they can order appraisals from a third party AMC (Appraisal Management Company).
- TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR APPRAISER PANELS
Appraisal Firewall lets you create panels of appraisers that you know, like and trust. With your established relationships delivering your appraisals to you online, you are assured that you get the same, high quality appraisals that you do today with the speed of the internet. In this changing valuation environment, nothing beats having the control you need to do business with your established relationships.
- COMPLIANCE AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Appraisal Firewall is designed for Lenders who want to stay compliant with HVCC, and also want to internalize their appraisal ordering and management duties. Appraisal Firewall tracks all ordering processes and messaging that occurs within the system and lets you print out these communications logs for hard copy storage in case of audit.
- QUICK APPRAISER SIGNUP
Why spend hours and even days chasing down appraiser counties, fees, and license numbers when appraisers already have this information? Save yourself from the work by sending invitations to appraisers who can sign themselves up with your company on Appraisal Firewall. All you have to know is your appraiser’s email address. Appraisers can enter their counties of coverage, their fees, upload their licenses, certifications, and E&O policies. Appraisal Firewall even checks the dates of the license expirations so you have less ongoing appraiser due diligence work.
- YOU CHOOSE! AUTOMATED OR MANUAL APPRAISER ORDER ASSIGNMENT
Appraisal Firewall takes an appraisal order and places it within that lender’s preferred or screened appraiser panel. The appraiser that is selected to work on an appraisal can be chosen either by Appraisal Firewall technology, or you can assign the appraiser to the order manually. Appraisal Firewall’s automated order assignment utilizes vicinity to subject property, products offered by appraiser, historical appraiser quality, and other pertinent appraiser selection criteria.
- CUSTOMER SERVICE MANAGEMENT WITH APPRAISERS
A full status and communications management system is at the heart of Appraisal Firewall. You know the status of each order as it progresses, you know the information that is required to complete each order, and you know if your appraisers need any help or more information. You are notified via email whenever an order is placed, if a status changes, if your appraisers leave you a message, and when an order is delivered and ready for your review.
