Create efficiencies

Centralize your
review process.

ClearCollateral Review delivers the industry’s leading dynamic appraisal review workflow system by using loan characteristics, automated appraisal risk assessments — including Fannie Mae’s Collateral Underwriter® (CU®), Freddie Mac’s Loan Collateral Advisor® (LCA), and the Federal Housing Administration’s Electronic Appraisal Delivery (EAD) findings — and external data. All the analytical tools and data required to review an appraisal are in one place.

Improve productivity

Save time
by eliminating
manual work.

Instead of the error-prone process of reviewing PDF-based appraisals manually, ClearCollateral Review can automatically do it for you. Our system maps data from the report into new and useful views, allowing you to quickly review a data snapshot when performing a low-risk review on appraisals that don’t require a deep dive.

Increase profitability

Reduce processing
time and complete
more reviews.

By using machine learning to automate the collateral underwriting process, you can reduce your review effort by 50% or more — depending upon reviewing Representations & Warranty (R&W) or non-R&W relief files — by eliminating manual tasks. Close loans faster, improve customer satisfaction, increase profitability, and win the market.

With reduced review time, you can provide a quicker turnaround on the appraisal process, providing a better experience to more customers.

Apply a cost-effective process

Focus on
exception management.

Our Tier system directs the right reviewer for the job to complete the right level of review for each file. This means you’ll spend less time reviewing low-risk files, and your senior reviewers can focus on the files that require their expertise.

Avoid loan delays

Separate collateral
from credit.

The system separates your collateral review team from your credit review team to avoid over- or under-review of appraisals by assigning reviews to experts with the right qualifications for the job.

Appraisals are reviewed as they return to the lender, which means revisions are requested immediately, and only when needed based on risk policies. This helps avoid additional costs from delayed loans due to unnecessary revisions.

mitigate underwriting risk

Mitigate risk

Ensure risk
principles are met.

Keep your investor’s guidelines at the forefront while you review the appraisal, as ClearCollateral Review is configured to meet a lender’s risk parameters dynamically — regardless of how risk is viewed — to automatically determine the required scope of review.

Increase your capacity

Scale the system
to your volume.

With dashboarding and reporting that allow you to easily understand volume and behavior, tools like Tiers, Quick Views, and configurable Review Forms allow you to build processes that scale, and keep you efficient — no matter your volume.
