It’s hard to overstate the importance of valuation services. Estimating the value of real estate effects all parties involved — lenders, investors, insurance, the buyer and seller of the property. Picking a valuation method is a matter of the utmost importance for every mortgage professional.

However, technology has changed the way we do absolutely everything, including valuations. Kevin Wall explains his thoughts on the roll of technology, data and analytics in the valuation space in this blog post published back in May. He explains the overall benefits technology has on valuations and the impact on everyone involved. Appraisers are still accomplishing the same job, just more efficiently, increasing turn times and therefore accomplishing more in less time, creating a happier borrower.

But with so many flavors to choose from, how do you know which technology best suits your business? HousingWire’s Mortgage Services Guide was created to meet that need, helping mortgage professionals locate the right services, vendors and technology from a trusted source.
