As a national provider of valuation services for over 25 years, Nations Valuation Services (NVS) has become deeply rooted within the appraisal community, touting an average tenure of over 9 years for our appraiser partners.
Coupled with our existing panel of over 25,000 appraisers, NVS provides our lender partners the ability to customize a preferred panel that will be subject to our vetting process and will be rotated based on performance and quality ratings which are applied through our proprietary scoring system.
Establishing a Pre-Approved Panel and Protecting You, the Lender, in the Process
Freddie Mac allows lenders to use a pre-approved list or panel to select an appraiser, provided that (1) any employees of the lender tasked with selecting appraisers for the list are independent of the loan production staff; and (2) the loan production staff is not involved in selecting appraisers from the list for particular appraisal assignments.
Because of the regulatory compliance surrounding the implementation of a pre-approved panel, NVS ensures that the proper protocols are followed as it pertains to; (1) who within the organization are selecting the appraisers, (2) the vetting of the preferred panel, and (3) the
on-going scoring of the appraisers as well as any subsequent disciplinary action.
