TROY, Mich., July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Class Valuation, a leading tech-enabled appraisal management company, announces today that they've successfully completed the verification process for Freddie Mac's new ACE+ PDR (automated collateral valuation plus property data report) solution.

Class will complete these data collection orders through Property Fingerprint, Class Valuation's 3D Scanning technology, which has produced tens of thousands of property data collections to date. Property Fingerprint's comprehensive data collection and reporting process are not only built to support programs like ACE+ PDR, but also support desktop and hybrid appraisal processes providing streamlined cycle times, saving more than two days on average nationwide, and reducing revision rates by 85%.

Set to roll out this July, Freddie Mac's ACE+ PDR solution?is a new offering that allows lenders to originate cash-out and certain no cash-out refinance loans without an appraisal. With ACE+ PDR, additional property information is physically collected on-site by trained data collectors and/or data collection technology using the Freddie Mac PDR dataset, in lieu of an appraisal.

The data set requirements to participate are very comprehensive and Class Valuation's Property Fingerprint Report provides lenders everything they need to leverage this new and exciting product.

ACE+ PDR offers an expedited valuation solution to help lenders get to the closing table faster and with greater certainty. Lenders who are interested in participating in ACE+ PDR must work with a provider who can fulfill these requirements.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
