Achieve Appraisal Independence with AppraiserLoft™

As you may know, The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protections Act* has changed the way appraisers fundamentally work with lenders. AppraiserLoft leads the industry by providing the Appraisal Independence that lenders and appraisers need. In fact, we certify it.

  • Our Appraisal Panel

    The AppraiserLoft panel of over 20,000 licensed or certified appraisers are selected, maintained, and supervised by our experienced real estate appraiser team. We have one of the industry's most rigorous quality control processes that review appraiser performance on several key performance metrics including work quality, licensing and communications. In fact, it's our job to ensure our clients receive the highest quality independent appraisal possible.
  • We Select the Best

    AppraiserLoft selects the best appraiser for the subject property. We don't don't steer appraisals based on compensation, but rather based their ability to offer the quickest and most accurate appraisal available. AppraiserLoft certifies that we do not provide the appraiser with any estimates, subject values, target values, loan amounts, or proposed loan-value ratio. It's our job to protect our clients by strictly prohibiting lender/client conversations that would violate Appraiser Independence.
  • Nationwide Coverage

    AppraiserLoft is registered in every state that requires AMC registration. We even have registrations pending in all the states that are accepting applications but have not issued registration certification. Our goal as always, will be to meet all requirements to perform appraisals in all 50 states.

AppraiserLoft assists our lender clients by safeguarding their business by clearly maintaining compliance with accepted industry standards for Appraiser Independence. We're confident that our approach to compliance leads the industry that we certify every appraisal.

What is an appraisal management company?

An appraisal management company (AMC) is a business entity that administers a network of certified and licensed appraisers to fulfill real estate appraisal assignments on behalf of mortgage lending institutions, as well as other entities. The AMC recruits, qualifies, verifies licensing, and negotiates fees and service level expectations with a network of third-party appraisers. It also provides administrative duties like order entry and assignment, tracking and status updates, pre-delivery quality control, and preliminary and hard copy report delivery. Furthermore, it involves ongoing quality control, accounts payable and receivable, market value dispute resolution, warranty administration, and record retention.

An appraisal management company, therefore, is an outsourcing solution that is usually paid by a lender-client to act on the lender/client's behalf to engage real estate appraisers and to perform the administrative functions involved in the appraisal ordering, tracking, and delivery process.

In its essence, appraisal management is the act of managing a panel of fee appraisers and performing the administrative elements needed to process and fulfill individual appraisal assignments. Order in, order through, order out.
