Appraisal Firewall is the story of a software company dedicated to providing relationship-based services to the mortgage industry for more than 25 years.
From our company’s inception in 1989, we have had a community-oriented technology offering, and our focus has been to promote relationships between service providers and financial institutions.
Appraisal Firewall was developed in direct response to HVCC and the idea that lenders could still work with their local appraisers without going through a management company. The Dodd-Frank Act replaced HVCC and Appraisal Firewall has continued to help lenders of all sizes cope with the ever-changing regulatory landscape.
We continue to focus on self-managed solutions that fit local lending operations directly with local appraisers. We believe this produces the best results for the borrower, lender and appraiser as it puts the parties that care the most in touch with each other.
Today, thousands of appraisals go through Appraisal Firewall in a safe, compliant environment that encourages embracing local relationships. We will continue to develop the technology to further enhance everyone’s lending experience while minimizing the challenges posed by the changing regulatory environment.
We look forward to working with you and hearing about how we can help.
