Does Freddie Mac contract appraisers directly or do they use a middle man? Does anyone have an address/phone number for them? I have looked at the Freddiemac.com page but could find no reference for appraisal work. Sure would like to get on their approved list.

Back several weeks ago someone mentioned doing REO work directly for Fannie Mae. We followed the advice, went to the Dallas convention and have been okayed for doing work for them. This forum really works.

Thanks in advance for any info you might have.

Some lenders are Freddie, some are Fannie and some are both. I don't think Freddie orders anything direct. Anyway they have Loan Propector (AVM values) which they are pushing.

Homesteps handles the REOs for Freddie Mac. I have never checked into their website but it is: [url=http://www.homesteps.com]http://www.homesteps.com[/url][/url]

Wander around on that site and you might find something. An AMC out of CA was ordering for Homesteps for a while (shorted my check by $49.95--never did figured out why).
