HOW CROSSCHECK ENCHANCES YOUR APPRAISAL QUALITY CONTROL
Crosscheck triggers a Prescreen as soon as the appraiser submits an appraisal report. The Prescreen highlights issues with the report and enables the appraiser to fix them before sending them on to the appraisal desk. This ensures that reports don’t have to go back and forth, saving precious time & results in quality appraisals delivered to the appraisal desk.
Crosscheck is fast! And by that we mean blink-of-an-eye fast! As soon as the report is submitted to Crosscheck, it is analyzed in real-time and the results are made available without having to miss a beat. The result is less distractions and more productivity.
Every time a report is submitted for a Crosscheck review, the system automatically verifies the appraiser’s information against the Appraisal Sub Committee database to ensure the validity of their license and veracity of their information. Crosscheck also verifies additional appraiser information on the report & highlights any missing items.
Crosscheck can be customized to meet the specific requirements of your needs. Separate checklists can be created for different correspondent lenders you may work with and can be easily set up.
Create checklists that are tailored to your needs so that only specific rules are checked when you run Crosscheck for your orders
