RISMEDIA, Oct. 15, 2007-Fidelity National Information Services, Inc. (FIS) announced the rollout of FIS Valuation Solutions’ HQ Certified Valuation, an end-to-end appraisal solution that combines speed, accuracy and economical cost to satisfy the valuation needs of loan originators, servicers and capital markets firms.
In addition, HQ Certified Valuation closes any potential fraud gaps in the valuation process, since in-house appraisers make the valuation without any mortgage broker contact. The rollout will originate from the Southern California region, followed by subsequent rollouts beginning in the first quarter of 2008.
The HQ Certified Valuation report consists of three basic components: the initial property valuation summary report, the in-house real estate appraiser analysis, and the interior and exterior subject property inspection. It is comparable to a typical appraisal process, but includes the added benefits of superior appraiser qualifications, extensive research databases, competitive cost and product backing.
“FIS takes pride in providing customized residential property valuation and collateral risk management solutions for our loan origination, secondary market and loan servicing clients,” said Jon Davis, president of the Valuation Solutions division of FIS. “HQ Certified Valuation extends FIS’ commitment to establish a valuation benchmark for the industry by providing our customers with a customizable balance of speed, price, accuracy and security.”
After the initial valuation summary data is gathered for the subject property, FIS Valuation Solutions consolidates this information with the in-house real estate appraiser analysis and the physical inspection findings to develop a comprehensive appraisal report that determines a single point of value for the property.
The HQ Certified Valuation report is completed by a licensed real estate appraiser on traditional Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac appraisal forms and is backed by the power of FIS Valuation Solutions, an industry leader in due diligence products, services and technology. The report includes the appropriate scope of work for standardization and consistency and is FIRREA and USPAP compliant.
