When an appraisal management
company truly understands your business, it
does more than improve your results -
it improves your bottom line.
AppraiserLoft appraisers are professionally certified by the state in which the
property is located. Our customers can feel secure knowing that the
professional standards outlined by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal
Practice (USPAP) and Financial Institutions Reform Recovery and Enforcement Act
(FIRREA) guidelines are always observed.
AppraiserLoft is committed to providing the highest quality residential valuation
services possible. Every appraisal we deliver passes through a checkpoint system
which confirms completeness and other basic quality control issues. We continually
monitor and adjust our processes in order to maximize the quality of our products
and the speed of their delivery. Some appraisal management companies use
automated review systems that attempt to analyze the data selection and value
conclusions of the appraiser. Experience has shown us that such systems are often
unreliable, and counterproductive. These automated quality evaluations tend to
reduce efficiency by flagging those issues that an experienced and competent real
estate appraiser would have already identified and addressed. AppraiserLoft
manages quality proactively by insisting on the best work from both staff and
appraisers. Instead of using automation, employing underpaid, or unqualified staff
to review every appraiser’s analysis, each report is professionally reviewed by our
in house review staff who hold the appraiser to the highest standards required by
them as certified professionals.

As a representative of AppraiserLoft, and by extension the lender, we require
our appraisers to take into consideration the unique expectations and support
levels that are essential when working with our seniors. Often times the
appraiser is one of the few, if not the only, personal interactions a senior will
have during their Reverse Mortgage loan closing process. For this reason, we
understand that it is essential for the appraiser to conduct their inspection
with the utmost care, respect and professionalism for our senior clients.

We understand that senior clients are very special and deserve to be treated as such. Therefore, in accordance with our
clients’ expectations and requirements we ask that each member of our professional appraisal panel who chooses to be
qualified to perform Reverse Mortgage appraisals adhere to the following guidelines and expectations. These guidelines are
offered based on our significant experience working with Reverse Mortgage clients. It is our intention to make the appraisal
portion of the loan process run as smoothly as possible. We know that for many Reverse Mortgage borrowers, obtaining a loan
on their family home is a highly sensitive and unfamiliar process. It is our job, and by extension, the appraiser’s to ensure that
this experience is as pleasant as possible.
