Valuation Partners, a national real estate valuations provider, announced that it is providing certifications on all new orders that provide proof that the appraiser chosen for each particular assignment has the local knowledge and expertise to complete the assignment. The company will provide these certifications, called an Appraiser Proximity Certification, on every order at no additional cost. Using geo-coding technology, each Appraiser Proximity Certification includes an automatically generated map showing the location of both the subject property and the appraiser’s place of business. Prior to accepting the order, the appraiser will acknowledge the distance between his or her office and the property is correct, which helps ensure that the appraiser has sufficient knowledge of the area to provide an accurate valuation. “In the current environment, we believe it's extremely important to fully certify the local expertise of our fee appraisers,” said Bill Fall, chief executive officer of Valuation Partners. “Our Appraiser Proximity Certifications will provide lenders extra piece of mind and assurance that the right expert is on the job.” For more information, visit www.ValuationPartners.com.
