Own the Appraisal Process

Appraisals are delicate and risky business, especially with Dodd-Frank, UAD and UCDP now governing orders and submissions, and assessing strict fines for non-compliance. If appraisals are submitted incorrectly to the GSEs, origination can come to a halt, and you run the risk of tarnishing your company’s reputation with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

You need an appraisal solution that streamlines the appraisal workflow from start to finish by helping you stay compliant, save money and get through origination faster.

Note: Ellie Mae provides technology and connectivity for its Encompass clients to communicate with third-party appraisers and Appraisal Management Companies (AMCs) about performing appraisals for loan files. It is the responsibility of the appraiser or AMC selected by the Encompass user to manage the appraisal process. Ellie Mae is not an AMC and does not administer, review or verify the work of these appraisers or AMCs.

What Our Clients Say

"Sometimes problems take five or six days to fix in post-closing, when you could have fixed it in five minutes up front if you knew about it. Encompass gives us the visibility we need to identify problems early, so in the end, there’s really nothing to do but close the loan."
