2002 year-to-date fundings total $78.49 billion, an increase of 45

Lending, which reported production of $10.69 billion, with
66,361 loans funded. InterFirst's year-to-date production totals
$66.14 billion, with 419,382 loans funded.
AAMG also announced that it will employ a new
appraisal-alternative product developed by Fidelity National Information Solutions
(FNIS), to replace traditional full appraisals for many of the
company's first mortgage loan originations. AAMG will use FNIS'
Collateral Valuation Insurance (CVI) to streamline the collateral
evaluation process in its first mortgage operations. In addition to
its locally-implemented automated ordering and receipt, AAMG is
seeing improvements in turnaround time and the quality of CVI's
collateral evaluations. AAMG's adoption of CVI supports the
company's OneFee settlement approach and company-wide initiative to
streamline the mortgage origination process.
