Integrations enhance appraiser productivity and appraisal quality, accelerating collateral underwriting for mortgage lenders
(RED DEER, Alberta) — NEWS: Anow, developer of appraisal firm management software that simplifies the way real estate appraisers manage their businesses, today announced appraiser productivity and appraisal quality integrations with Veros Real Estate Solutions (Veros(r)), a leading developer of enterprise risk management, collateral valuation and predictive analytics services.
Anow’s new integration with Veros’ PATHWAY(TM) platform allows Anow users to submit appraisals to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac through the Uniform Collateral Data Portal (UCDP) and to the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) via the Electronic Appraisal Delivery (EAD) portal. Prior to integrating with PATHWAY, Anow delivered appraisals back to its lender clients, who then had to submit appraisals themselves to the GSEs and FHA. Now, Anow will handle this process for lenders, saving them time, effort and money and reducing the potential for risk.
As an additional quality control (QC) measure, PATHWAY incorporates Veros’ VeroSCORE(TM) appraisal risk management solution to score appraisals and identify potential appraisal-related issues prior to submission.
Anow users can now order automated valuation model (AVM) services from Veros’ proprietary VeroVALUE(TM) AVM or from other third-party AVMs and AVM cascades through VeroSELECT. VeroVALUE provides a value estimate, value range, confidence score, subject property information, local market data and historic price trends for the subject property’s neighborhood. A 12-month valuation forecast and fraud detection indicators are available as add-on services.
Alternatively, Anow customers can use VeroPRECISION(TM), the industry’s first property-level, next-generation valuation decision engine, to determine up front if a subject property is a good candidate for an AVM. If so, VeroPRECISION will automatically determine the most accurate and appropriate AVM for that specific property.
Anow is also directly integrating with Veros’ VeroSELECT(SM) to offer access to both companies’ services through a single technology platform. VeroSELECT is a vendor-agnostic enterprise management platform that provides access to a comprehensive suite of more than 25 innovative collateral risk solutions from 15-plus vendors, helping lenders best assess collateral values at origination and across existing portfolios.
“Appraisers, mortgage lenders, real estate pros and investors alike trust and turn to Veros for best-of-breed collateral valuation solutions,” said Anow Founder and CEO Marty Haldane. “That’s why these integrations fit perfectly with Anow’s mission to deliver top-shelf appraisal solutions that accelerate the digital mortgage workflow and instill confidence in the secondary market regardless of the current cycle.”
“Anow has a well-deserved reputation for providing superior appraisal office management solutions that help appraisers streamline processes, minimize costs and reduce risk. We’re looking forward to leveraging our innovative products and technology solutions to support both Anow’s business objectives and those of their valued customers,” said Veros Vice President of Sales Robert Walker, CMB, CMT.
