GREENVILLE, S.C. – February 28, 2022 – Certified residential appraiser Paul Ryll is pleased to announce the availability of a new offering, Oscar Mike Mobile Appraisals (OMMA), a secure desktop appraisal platform that captures information, images, and square footage of properties that are the subject of real estate transactions. The product is now available to upstate mortgage lenders, Appraisal Management Companies (AMCs), and other real estate professionals following the recent approval of desktop appraisals from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and Fannie Mae.
Effective March 19, appraisers will permanently be able to perform appraisals without physically inspecting properties, which can lead to increased efficiencies, cost-savings, accurate data, lower revision rates, and the reduction of potential discrimination claims, among other benefits. This method, which has been temporarily allowed since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, is now a long-term, viable option for the industry.
“The OMMA product was built with lenders and AMCs in mind and comes to market at a critical time as desktop appraisals become a long-term option for real estate transactions,” said Ryll. “Products like
OMMA will become game-changers for industry professionals looking to streamline processes amid the continued high volume of real estate transactions and shortage of certified or licensed appraisers.”
OMMA is supported by industry-leader CubiCasa, which provides the global real estate market with advanced 2D, 3D, and interactive 3D floorplans. Once data is collected, it is reviewed and verified by a licensed or certified residential appraiser before the appraisal is finalized and returned to the end-user.
In addition to use-cases for lenders and AMCs, OMMA can help realtors in a number of ways including being a viable option for pre-listing data before the start of the official buying or selling process.
