San Francisco- based HouseCanary, a provider of modern valuation and appraisal solutions, announced a partnership with Dart Appraisal to accelerate the growth of its Agile Appraisal™ Platform, a valuation platform with full USPAP and FIRREA compliance. Dart Appraisal is an independently-owned, nationwide Appraisal Management Company founded in 1993.
Launched in September, Agile Appraisal™ connects users to a network of licensed, geographically competent appraisers who are available on demand. According to HouseCanary, this partnership will allow users to receive their appraisal in as little as five days, and provides a more affordable alternative to the traditional appraisal.
“We are extremely excited to be partnering with Dart Appraisal to bring efficiency, consistency, and innovation to the appraisal fulfillment process,” said Alex Villacorta, PhD, HouseCanary’s EVP of Analytics. “At HouseCanary, we’ve built a carefully curated platform of the industry’s most comprehensive set of data and analytics, and now we are pleased to equip Dart’s appraiser panel with our data and analytics platform so appraisers can focus on the areas of the assignment that are most important to the valuation analysis,” he explained.
“The valuation industry is constantly evolving, and it’s important that we offer unique, efficient and accurate products that meet our clients’ needs,” said Dart Appraisal President Michael Dresden. “The Agile Appraisal™ combines HouseCanary’s extensive set of data and analytics with the expertise and local knowledge of credentialed appraisers, which makes this product truly innovative.”
