Group Resources offers an arrangement of market-leading Automated Valuation Models (AVMs), including custom cascades — selecting the most appropriate valuation model from a group of individual AVMs.
The cascade approach capitalizes on the strengths and weaknesses of the various AVM engines, allowing lenders to reduce the need for costly Broker Price Opinions (BPOs) and appraisals, creating an efficient valuation process that meets your compliance needs.
Home Value Explorer® (HVE®)
Home Value Explorer from Freddie Mac is a popular AVM well respected for its nationwide geographic coverage, high fulfillment rates and valuation precision. HVE results include confidence scores based on the forecast standard deviation (FSD).
Home Value Calibrator® (HVC®)
As a quality control improvement device, HVC measures the risk that a collateral valuation may exceed the market value. Calibrator spots potentially inflated values to identify loans that merit further investigation regardless of the valuation’s source. Detecting these potential above-market valuations enables lenders to match review levels to risk, prioritize workflow and prevent high-risk loans from receiving funding.
Black Knight’s Advantage Cascade is a fully loaded, multi-supplier, multi-AVM engine that ensures you have access to a wide range of the best possible models in a given market.
Black Knight’s ValuEdge Cascade is a discounted AVM engine used for a number of marketing and underwriting purposes, including valuing an entire portfolio or obtaining quick values for loan modification and home equity campaigns.
