Innovation for All
Clear Capital invites partners to join them in achieving a shared goal of bringing appraisals along on a digital transformation journey. Through Application Programming Interface (API) tools, partners can readily integrate modern valuation tools directly into their own systems to enhance their customers’ experience. The company’s suite of solutions that are now available industry-wide includes:
- Modern Appraisal Solutions, a product suite of property data collection services that supports lenders and appraisal management companies performing desktop and hybrid appraisals, powered by teams of appraisers trained on modern solutions, certified property data collection specialists, and Clear Capital’s customer success and support teams. This comprehensive program and suite of digital tools are the result of years of building strong partnerships with mortgage lenders and investors. Through Clear Capital’s Modern Appraisal Solutions, appraisal companies are empowered to perform hybrid appraisals and desktop appraisals, bolstered by digital floor plans, property information, and analytics.
- CubiCasa, a revolutionary mobile technology that automates floor plan sketch creation, calculates gross living area (GLA) aligned with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards and digitizes property data collection. Square footage is the second-highest driver of a home’s value (the first being location), and CubiCasa’s technology helps minimize inconsistencies and variations in the property data collection and inspection process. This capability can be seamlessly integrated into existing partner mobile apps via an SDK.
- ClearCollateral® Review, a review system that automates collateral underwriting in compliance with internal credit policies and GSE guidelines. The system centralizes all analytical tools and property data required to review an appraisal and leverages machine learning to eliminate manual tasks including understanding over and under valuation risk, freeing up lenders to focus on a better borrower experience.
- ClearPhoto™, as part of Clear Capital’s ClearCollateral automated review suite, companies can access a powerful set of AI-driven rules that automates the review of property photos and ensures they are aligned with the appraisal data and sketch. ClearPhoto significantly reduces time spent identifying the photo-related error(s) by instantly checking for property photos’ accuracy and quality.
Clear Capital aims to partner with innovative technology, reseller, and data companies across the mortgage and real estate industries. The company’s current partners are forward-thinking real estate technology and services companies that share Clear Capital’s commitment to streamlining the often-lengthy and labor-intensive homebuying process.
