Desktop Appraisal Solutions

Whether you need a complete GSE-compliant desktop appraisal or simply the floor plan and property data to execute one, Clear Capital has solutions. Developed by some of the brightest minds in the industry, our suite of Desktop Appraisal products eliminates the uncertainty around fulfillment and deliver serious cycle time savings.

Desktop Appraisal

Our all-in-one Desktop Appraisal provides a reliable valuation for a Fannie Mae 1004 Desktop or Freddie Mac 70D appraisal. Pairing innovative technology with our nationwide network of property data collectors and experienced appraisers, we deliver a desktop appraisal lenders can trust.

Desktop Data Collection

For lenders with appraiser panels or AMCs who’d like a partner to collect data, our Desktop Data Collection assembles the property data to complete a GSE-compliant desktop appraisal. This includes property information, photos, and an ANSI-aligned floor plan with interior walls and digital gross living area (GLA).

Desktop appraisals enable a modern appraisal process that is time-efficient without sacrificing quality or thoroughness. And at Clear Capital, we have the technology, property data, and certified broker and appraiser network for lenders to unlock the benefits of desktop appraisals.

Benefits of Desktop Appraisals

More Speed

Leveraging the power of technology, desktop appraisals are up to 50% faster than a traditional appraisal, creating more appraiser capacity and expediting the mortgage lending process.

More Precision

By standardizing property data collection and requiring a detailed floor plan, desktop appraisals give visibility into a property’s gross living area (GLA) and drive consistency nationwide.

Less Friction

The new, streamlined and standardized desktop appraisal process reduces closing date uncertainty, mitigates financial risk, and fortifies confidence in the appraisal report across all parties.

Better Experience

By providing high-quality property data before a valuation and eliminating the appraiser’s trip to the subject property, desktop appraisals allow them to complete more reports in less time.
