First Valuation’s Retrospective Value Review (RVR) report is compiled by a local market expert to the subject property to include the original full detail sheets on each comparable MLS sale available retrospective to the time of valuation, and specific details pertaining to the subject property including tax records, MLS sales and listing history. The RVR is designed with complete ease-of-use functionality which streamlines the review process including an interactive directory which hyperlinks the report content and eliminates the need for time consuming scrolling.
The report is available in three levels, the RVR, RVR+ and RVR+ with Risk Rating, to suit the individual needs of each client. The RVR itself contains all the data on the subject and comparables and all of the functionality that make it a unique solution for retrospective reviews. The RVR+ incorporates everything in the RVR but allows users to include comparables from a prior valuation into the report, allowing access to the original MLS data sheets and public records information for those comparables.
The RVR+ with Risk Rating provides the highest degree of analysis aimed to reveal or refute valuation misrepresentation. This report includes every feature of the RVR, in addition to an analysis of a client provided valuation, such as an origination appraisal, that identifies red flags in the appraisal. If risks are identified, the RVR+ with Risk Rating produces a value variance between the original valuation report and the actual market data for the subject property.
“Launching this product allows First Valuation to identify misrepresentation or validate the information in past valuations,”
Among the unique features of the series of RVR reports is the interactive Support Doc Portal, where users can interact with the data in the report and create a support doc PDF of only the information that is important to them. The Portal allows the end user to view automated comp scores, custom star ratings of each comp as identified by the local market expert and easily sort information and select the information needed to generate additional unique reports.
Retrospective Valuation Review reports are completed by the company’s network of local market experts comprised of licensed real estate agents, brokers and appraisers, using the company’s data driven, award-winning V3 technology. Once the report is received in-house, First Valuation’s quality control team reviews every report to ensure accuracy, quality and consistency.
“Our RVR reports provide lenders with detailed quality market and MLS data necessary to determine possible fraud or misrepresentation in original valuations,”
