These include: the 4-Hour Desktop Appraisal in 2012, the 48-hour Drive-by Appraisal in 2016 and within the past 12 months, a full interior inspection appraisal that can be completed in as little as one hour. Unlike traditional form-filling software, Valligent’s technologies enable a data-driven approach to appraisals that’s in sync with emerging AI-machine learning developments. Since the appraisal is typically one of the most time-consuming factors in the mortgage process, McCarty’s contributions to shortening the time it takes to complete an appraisal have significantly expedited mortgage turn times, reduced costs, and improved closing ratios. Valligent products include a mobile video app and appointment scheduling, which helps position borrowers in the modern, digital age.
