OptiVal+ is the ultimate solution
for home equity valuation
Home equity lending is booming! If you’re considering offering home equity to your customers or if you already do, then you understand that these loans don’t generally carry the same risk profile as a first mortgage.
Why not choose a valuation solution that matches the risk?
Start with the best valuation model
OptiVal+ starts with our industry-leading AVM cascade to determine the value of the subject property. The OptiVal AVM Cascade uses rigorous testing and advanced analytics to compare and rate AVM quality, delivering the AVM value that is optimal for your subject property.
This gives you better information and broader coverage than a single AVM while also minimizing risk, as our cascade meets all Interagency Guidelines for appraisal and evaluation. We will even support internal and external risk reviews!
Once our cascade has delivered the best AVM for your property (in less than a minute), local experts get boots on the ground, gathering photos and helping you avoid any surprises.
Add the current property condition
By mobilizing 30,500 highly trained and professionally certified inspectors and field reps across the United States, you have eyes on the property as well as the value range to help you set the appropriate ceiling for the equity loan. For those properties that are tricky, you can always upgrade to a full appraisal with a couple of clicks. But why pay full appraisal prices if you don't have to?
