Can an Appraisal Firewall Lender Survey Really Help Me Get More Control Over My Appraisals? You Bet it Can!

Jessica Thompson

Surveys are boring, right?  They take time, they take thought – two things we’d rather save for something…better. Like fishing, watching our kids’ soccer games or shopping for new bathroom rugs.

But surveys really can help you! Appraisal Firewall’s 2012 Lender Survey was taken by many lenders – some of whom use Calyx Point as their LOS – and the results overwhelmingly pointed toward a need for more control over appraisals and related data. The newest Appraisal Firewall release is the result of this survey feedback: it delivers unparalleled control over your appraisals, both at the Management level (over many branches) and at the mortgage department level.  Check out a live video of our new Appraisal Firewall Orders Dashboard.

The Pipeline Reports show you all active orders in all statuses. The Post-delivery reports show you all orders that have been delivered by the appraiser but are still in a review phase (UCDP review, corrections required, comp dispute, etc).  Both reports are 100% filterable by you – so you quickly get what’s important to you. Pinned Orders let you build custom lists of orders that you want to specifically keep an eye on – regardless of status.

Use Point as your front end, and (if you aren’t already) use Appraisal Firewall as your appraisal control panel! For more information contact Jim Norman or leave a comment here on the Calyx Corner Blog.
