Since the mortgage meltdown of 2007, industry regulations have skyrocketed to an all-time high and the demands of an appraiser’s role have grown in tandem. A recent “Appraiser Update” published by Fannie Mae cited that 33%+ of appraisals incur revision requests largely due to data quality issues.
Residential real estate appraisers looking for faster ways to create accurate appraisals are choosing HouseCanary as the next-generation appraisal software. HouseCanary Appraiser helps appraisers close more business in less than half the time and cost, compared to traditional appraising products.
HouseCanary’s appraisal software combines integrated analytics with all the tools needed to complete UAD appraisals in one user-friendly interface. Additionally, HouseCanary Appraiser is the first and only full-featured cloud appraisal solution available on desktop and mobile devices.
Here’s what a leading appraiser in Tennessee had to say about HouseCanary Appraiser:
“I’ve used Total and ACI, and HouseCanary is by far the easiest program to learn. I was hooked after doing only 5 reports.”
– Stan Shelton, Certified General Real Estate Appraiser
