—New Product Reduces Servicer Costs and Valuation Risk Through Transparent Validation of BPO Content—

 

CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, today introduced BPO Check, a new product specifically designed to reduce the cost of broker price opinion (BPO) reviews, improve BPO accuracy, and manage short sale fraud.

BPO Check uses patented CoreLogic automated valuation model (AVM) technology, as well as the CoreLogic property information database, MLS listings, other data proprietary to CoreLogic and market risk analytics to create a single score that identifies high-risk BPOs.

BPO Check evaluates each predictive factor independently and then produces a single score and alerts that identify potential issues. The product provides detailed data including county records, MLS photos and maps that allow plotting of user-selected comparables, system-identified comparables and broker-selected comparables. This comprehensive data comparison gives reviewers the information they need, all in one place, to establish confidence that the BPO is accurate.

“BPO Check is an unbiased, model-based approach which provides confidence in a property’s value in a cost-effective and timely manner and brings increased transparency to valuations,” said Jacqueline Doty, vice president of collateral strategy at CoreLogic. “With distressed properties constituting a large percent of the market, achieving consistent and accurate property valuations is vital to mitigating losses and protecting institutions from fraud. By leveraging BPO Check, servicers, lenders and BPO companies can now work together to ensure that risk is minimized and the value estimate is accurate.”

BPO Check works with any BPO from any provider and can be produced real-time or retrospectively. High-risk BPOs are quickly identified enabling servicers and lenders to rectify those valuations. Low-risk BPOs can be accepted with confidence because independent data sources corroborate the content. Servicers optimize reviewers’ time by selecting the score cutoffs and alerts that are most relevant.

“BPO Check streamlines the process of determining price accuracy and risk by eliminating the need to gather and compare multiple reports from multiple sources,” said David Williams, vice president of BPO services for CoreLogic. “Leveraging MLS data, market conditions data and public record data that cover 99 percent of residential properties, BPO Check provides a complete evaluation of a property’s value. BPO Check meets the highest industry standards, which include the quality control processes that CoreLogic has established as one of the largest national BPO providers.”
