Beginning in 2022, some residential mortgage appraisals will be limited to desktop analysis by appraisers, aided by property information provided by occupants, real estate agents, and data collection professionals. Appraisers will soon be able to broaden their geographic coverage, beyond their desired driving radius, which will lessen the problem of an appraiser shortage in outer lying areas. Additionally, a host of technological advancements are adding efficiencies to our daily appraisal practice. At Appraisalytics, we are FOR such changes and embrace the movement of appraisal modernization. We have even developed a proprietary algorithm, AutoMate, which produces fast and affordable desktop appraisals for the HELOC space. Contact us for a sample of our work.
