Broker price opinions (BPOs)
ServiceLink works with highly experienced real estate professionals who know what’s happening in the marketplace to provide you with quick-turn BPOs that support your servicing valuations needs. After conducting a drive-by inspection of the subject property, the agent or broker provides an opinion that includes both a quick-sale price and an as-is suggested list price, along with photos of the subject property and comparable properties.
Traditional appraisals (AMC services)
As one of the nation’s leading appraisal management companies (AMCs), ServiceLink provides access to a nationwide network of appraisers with deep experience in conducting traditional appraisals. Our comprehensive appraisal reports detail the property’s quality, condition and surrounding market conditions, based on personal on-site inspections. The quality of our appraiser panel is exceptional. We uphold stringent standards for background checks, verify that appraisers have adequate errors and omissions (E&O) coverage, strictly adhere to customary and reasonable (C&R) fee regulations, and continually monitor their performance.
Property condition reports (PCRs)
Having a clear view of the condition of each property is critical to your portfolio management decisions. ServiceLink provides you with PCRs that address your specific concerns as well as ServiceLink’s established standards. Features of each PCR include:
- A visual inspection of the subject property and neighborhood by a local real estate agent or broker
- A detailed assessment of the property’s condition, including any natural disaster damages
- Characteristics of the neighborhood and other nearby structures affecting property value
- Photos of the property, including deferred maintenance items and repairs
Alternative servicing valuations
When speed is a priority, ServiceLink offers a variety of alternative servicing valuations solutions that can be faster than traditional appraisals or even BPOs:
- Automated valuation models (AVMs) rely on statistical modeling and existing databases. They are a good starting point to help you quickly estimate value and assess risk across your holdings.
- Desktop appraisals are completed by appraisers without a physical property inspection. They use MLS data and public records to arrive at a property value.
- Hybrid valuations add a third-party on-site inspection to a desktop appraisal, offering a better sense of the condition of the property and neighborhood.
Our Desktop Valuation with Inspection (DVI) product includes:
- Independent opinion of value generated by a state-licensed or certified appraiser
- USPAP-compliant valuation report format
- Inter-Agency Guidelines (IAG) compliance for both evaluations and appraisals
