Graphic Course: Web Conference TrainingHVE Point Value Estimate Graphic

This 1-hour webinar is designed to assist you with understanding the Home Value Explorer® (HVE® ) informational feedback messages available in the Loan Prospector Feedback Certificate and the Uniform Collateral Data Portal® (UCDP® ). This automated valuation model provides users of Loan Prospector® with a point value estimate for the property address. This free service can help you more easily identify potentially inflated appraisal values that may need additional review earlier in the origination process.

The use of the HVE® point value estimate and other informational messages, can assist you with evaluating the accuracy of appraisals. The HVE® point value estimate is not a substitute for an appraisal in any way, and you should continue to follow your appraisal best practices, but a tool to help provide you with more confidence in the accuracy and reliability of property evaluations.
