Secondary market participants can add more accurate, cost-effective tools to their toolbox

In just a few days, we’ll be roaming the conference rooms at the Marriott Marquis in New York City at MBA’s 2019 National Secondary Market Conference & Expo. This year, we’ve seen great changes in the world of valuation, and it’s been an exciting time for professionals who work in secondary market due diligence.
One of those changes is the evolution of AVMs and property analytics. To refine valuation strategy and scope, we must have greater availability of clean, near-real-time market data paired with continuous advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Refinements in this field mean greater accuracy and speed at reduced costs. Clear Capital has used these methods to help secondary market participants with valuation solutions for whole loan sales, NPL/RPL trades, pre- and post-bid portfolio due diligence, and servicing. Further, Clear Capital has been working with several rating agencies and regulators to help implement guidelines around the use of Clear Capital’s AVM in deal due diligence workflows to make it easier to securitize pools of whole loans offered to investors in the secondary market.
In addition to automated solutions, a key factor in gathering property analytics is understanding when to take a deeper look at a property. While there is good progress on making decisions from existing data alone, having the ability to bring a human in the loop at the right time protects against outlier risk. With numerous conversations around the effectiveness of BPOs and the correct application of automated solutions, we are excited to discuss and share methods we see working for our customers at the conference.
Our CEO, Duane Andrews, and other members of our executive team will be among the crowd of attendees and might be a little tough to scope out — lock down a time to chat with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you aren’t attending the conference, you can still schedule time with us, and we’ll be more than happy to do a demo and answer any questions you may have.
