What is Collateral Desktop Analysis?

CDA is an efficient, cost-effective method to determine if the appraisal under review is adequately supported — delivering comprehensive appraisal review and analysis for any period of time by a state-licensed appraiser. It is designed to remove pre-funding uncertainty or support post-funding due diligence.

The CDA re-evaluates the entire appraisal in compliance with USPAP. The comprehensive review performed by a state-licensed appraiser extends to any misrepresentation or non-disclosure of prior transactions of the subject and comparables.

What can Collateral Desktop Analysis help with?

CDA provides due diligence and quality assurance at several stages in the review process:

  • Pre- and Post-Fund Due Diligence: CDA delivers data to support pre-fund and post-fund due diligence before and after funding the loan.
  • Forensic Due Diligence: The first step in forensic due diligence is to determine if a sample of appraisals warrant a more extensive review.
  • Additional Comparables: Access and review additional comparables to validate whether or not those provided are representative of the subject and market.
  • Quality Assurance: Gain peace-of-mind with an internal quality assurance audit in post-fund due diligence for lenders and investors.
  • GSE Post-Board: Review to determine the reliability of the valuation and to understand if a repurchase is justified.
