The decision earlier this year to increase the de minimis appraisal threshold for residential real estate transactions from $250,000 to $400,000 means many lenders are re-tooling their systems and processes to account for the new ceiling.

In this webinar, Accurate Group will explore how lenders of all sizes can determine how to implement Automated Valuation Model workflows into their lending processes.

Our experts will review “The Four Pillars of AVM Compliance,” a framework of best practices to ensure lenders are implementing AVMs effectively and efficiently to dramatically reduce turn time and save money vs. the cost of a traditional appraisal. Today, automation is imperative for lenders looking to maintain or create competitive advantage and with a much better understanding of the regulations and requirements for valuations, along with technology advancements making these solutions readily available, the time for AVMs is now!
