Automated Valuation Model (AVM)
Save time and money with an AVM appraisal. Ask J.T. Miller Company for an automated valuation model.
An online Automated Valuations Model is a database that matches similar properties to give you an idea of the range of sales prices that have been historically recorded. The information is limited to factual data. Some databases use Freddie Mac’s Home Value Explorer “HVE” using national repository real estate information, some other vendors use county record data, while others collect information from appraisal reports. Updates and remodeling are not typically available with the raw data provided.
If the house you are searching for is located in an area where the sale prices do not vary much, an AVM is a good first step to get an idea what similar houses are selling for.
Why use an Automated Valuation Model?
Mortgage lenders use AVM’s as substitutes for appraisals to establish property value on equity and refinance mortgage transactions at a significantly lower cost.
An AVM appraisal can include:
- First Loan Origination
- Equity Loan Origination
- Mortgage Loan Quality Control
- Portfolio Evaluation
- Appraisal Review
- Risk Assessment
- Target Marketing
