VI Direct clients have the option of adding Contract Appraisal QC Review Services. QC Review provides the benefits of an AMC by having licensed and certified appraisers employed by SVI review the files submitted by your panel of appraisers, offering the expertise of an “in-house” appraisal review staff without the overhead.
With this service, appraisal reports are reviewed for compliance with lender guidelines and Government Sponsored Enterprise (GSE), Fair Housing Act (FHA) and Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) requirements via the appraisal management software. Not only are the appraisals reviewed, but should conditions or corrections be necessary, these are seamlessly resolved by our staff once the appraisal is resubmitted to the VI Direct Platform.
Our review appraisal services pass the stringent requirements of the nation’s largest originators – let SVI put that experience to work for you. Contact us today to learn how Stewart and VI Direct can help you succeed.
