CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, today announced that Mercury Network has expanded the launch a new inspection-scheduling service called Xcelerator—an advanced solution that streamlines the scheduling process for appraisals by seamlessly connecting lenders, borrowers, appraisers and real estate agents. Currently, most appraisal appointments are scheduled by appraisers via phone calls or emails. This inefficient process often entails repeated attempts, missed calls and back- and-forth voice messages that can add days to the appointment process.
“We know that lenders and AMCs increasingly look to technology to stop delays in closings and improve the borrower’s experience.” said Jennifer Miller, president of CoreLogic│Mercury Network. “Inspection delays are a major hassle for lenders and AMCs, and, as with many components of the mortgage process, it’s a problem we have the technology to solve.”
Using the Xcelerator application tool, the borrowers or property contact (e.g., real estate agent) can see available appointment dates and times on their Apple and Android devices and computers, and can select their preferences for the appointments. Similarly, the specified appraiser can accept or modify appointments and communicate directly with the borrower or contact, via text, voice or email. Once the appointment has been set up, the property contact receives a confirmation of the appointment, complete with information on the appraiser who will be doing the inspection. Lenders have complete transparency into the appraisal cycle through a live tracking website.
CoreLogic Valuation Solutions announced the introduction of Xcelerator to FNC network clients using its enterprise solution CMS late last year. For lenders and appraisal providers who are currently part of the CoreLogic AppraisalPort®, Appraisal Xcelerator is integrated into their collateral management system’s tool kit.
“The launch of Appraisal Xcelerator to our Mercury Network customers introduces the efficiencies of digital and mobile technology into appraisal scheduling: taking time and hassle out of the process,” said Devi Mateti, executive, CoreLogic Valuation Technologies. “This is yet another step in our product innovation that we are taking to market designed to significantly impact and benefit our customers and the way the work.”
