The Obvious Choice for Appraisal Review: Collateral Desktop Analysis (CDA®)

Designed to remove pre-funding uncertainty, the CDA® re-evaluates the original appraisal so you can deliver a comprehensive loan file quickly. Our USPAP compliant appraisal desktop review can determine if the origination appraisal is adequately supported in:

  • First step forensic due diligence to decide whether a sample of appraisals warrants more extensive review.
  • Pre-fund due diligence prior to funding the loan.
  • Additional comparables to validate those provided are representative of both the subject and the market.
  • 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.
