CoreLogic® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled services provider, today announced a la mode’s launch of a month-long pilot of SmartExchange to Oklahoma City, Portland, Dallas and Denver appraisers ahead of its nationwide rollout next month. SmartExchange is a nationwide peer-to-peer network for sharing appraiser-verified comparable data. The tool aims to help appraisers reduce turn times and improve property data quality.
“We remain intently focused on developing solutions that save appraisers time by eliminating unnecessary and repetitive tasks,” said Jay Shafer, executive of CoreLogic ½ a la mode. “SmartExchange lightens the load on appraisers by crowdsourcing the data entry of comparable properties. Member appraisers share the comparable property data from their reports and gain access to other appraisers' data which saves hours of typing each week.”
MLS systems, public records, and other sources currently used to verify property details weren’t built with appraisers in mind. SmartExchange gives appraisers immediate access to pure, appraiser-verified and UAD-formatted appraisal data – widely regarded as the gold standard in property information. Access to that level of data is unprecedented and will improve the quality and consistency of appraisal reports. “The launch of SmartExchange to our a la mode customers is a huge step forward in how data is leveraged to benefit the appraisal industry in a way that saves time and reduces inefficiencies,” said Shafer. “SmartExchange is an example of how CoreLogic is leveraging its data assets and platform connectivity to improve the appraisal process.”
