Appraisals are required for every home purchase, but the process is often less efficient and accurate than it could be, and the appraisal workforce is aging and shrinking. In this seminar, experts will discuss how data, analytics, and technology could advance process changes and enable the appraisal system to better meet market demand. Faster and more accurate appraisals protect investors and government enterprise interests; give lenders certainty from repurchase risk; and ensure consumers are protected and well informed.
