Changes to appraisals, verification of borrowers’ finances strengthen underwriting

According to Fitch, having that much appraisal data also allows the GSEs to grant representation and warranty relief to lenders in some cases, as is the case with Fannie Mae’s Day 1 Certainty Program.

Additionally, the appraisal data horde enables the GSEs to waive the need for a new appraisal in some cases, as noted last year.

Fitch’s report also notes another feature of Fannie Mae’s Day 1 Certainty program: direct verification of borrowers’ income, assets, and employment.

“In addition to the changes occurring with appraisal valuations, Fannie Mae recently introduced a process of directly verifying a borrower's income and assets by using third-party vendor data, allowing for greater certainty on the accuracy of borrower-provided information,” Fitch writes. “Lenders and borrowers benefit through shorter processing times and less required paperwork, as well as representation and warranty relief for lenders.”


Sounds like they're going to work from Corelogic's data base.

So much for an appraiser shortage.

You might recognze some of the commenters below the article.

Yup, we have to build a new bubble some how.

All I can say to the GSE's is that we are in a classic bubble, builder's are building as fast as they can, inventory is near zero, prices are rising at double digits. If you abandon appraisals now, you will have the biggest financial mess in history on your hands. It'll be a repeat of the Big Recession, but the next time is will be the Super Depression. Don't say I didn't warn you.
