Automated Appraisal Review and You: Adapting in an Era of Automation (8:45 AM -11:45 AM)
For Appraisers! With the advent of UAD and UCDP the GSEs and others have been capturing data that, when coupled with other data sources, allows for an automated review of the appraisal report.

This seminar is designed to provide appraisers and lenders with an understanding about the workings of automated appraisal review systems. The program addresses inter-party communication and contains a series of examples illustrating how automated systems check for compliance - USPAP, lender, investor, etc., completeness, red flags - risky characteristics, misrepresentations, omissions and inconsistencies within the appraisal report.
