PropMix announced the launch of appraisal industry’s first fully automated appraisal validation service. The new service uses PropMix’s proprietary image recognition platform and machine learning to analyze an appraisal report in any format – PDF or XML. The service is able to extract images from the PDF and ensure that all the required subject and comparable photos are included. For example, the photos of the property should cover the front view of the house, living area, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, etc. It can also verify if the photos in fact belong to the subject or not. The images extracted include photos, maps, sketches, and all other attachments. In addition, it can also ensure that all appraiser related attachments such as license, insurance, etc. have been included.
The service also leverages PropMix’s unique centralized real estate data store to compute and validate the comparable properties selected for the appraisal. An automated similarity scoring algorithm identifies the best comparables. The service validates using all the Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae appraisal validation rules and also provides the option to customize the validation rules as required.
These checks ensure that any appraisal report from ACI or Ala Mode or other forms providers go through a thorough validation process and is compliant to known rules before submission for underwriting. The automation saves cost and minimizes the effort required to accomplish these as part of the loan origination workflow.
