As more aspects of the mortgage process venture into the online realm, appraisal remains a bottleneck that regularly causes significant delays and loss in profit. With so many costs and slowdowns being attributed to inefficient appraisals, the opportunity that online appraisal presents is enormous, leaving no room for lenders to forsake fintech solutions that focus on this pivotal part of the process.
Reggora is facing the issues surrounding modern appraisals head-on with its industry-leading Reggora Appraisal Management Platform. With the help of the company’s innovative appraisal platform, lenders can reduce costs per loan by up to $258 per file by addressing multiple pain points within a lender’s appraisal operation:
- Lengthy cycle times
- Operational efficiency
- Revenue leakage
- Lack of visibility for loan officers and borrowers
With the number of professional appraisers continuing to shrink, having the right appraisal tech solutions in place is crucial to sustained growth and ensuring the appraisal doesn’t slow the rest of the mortgage journey. According to STRATMOR research, 1 in 8 closings is delayed due to the appraisal, and issues with the appraisal are cited in nearly 6% of cases when the borrower walks away from a loan. And those numbers add up when it comes to profit loss.
By automating the manual components of the process and providing a singular source of truth for loan officers and stakeholders, Reggora’s appraisal management platform increases the overall efficiency and value of each loan file, ultimately minimizing the risk of profit loss.
Reggora’s platform stands out from legacy products as an innovative solution that actively invests in solving snags in the appraisal process. Reggora’s platform simplifies tech adoption by integrating into a lender’s existing LOS thanks to its open APIs.
The Reggora Appraisal Management Platform’s cost savings and automation amount to $286 worth of value per loan for lenders across several value drivers:
- Reducing time in appraisal manual management billing activities
- Eliminating revenue leakage from payment collection

- Increasing referrals through an improved borrower experience
