Turn times vary by location and volume. However we offer
the following suggestions to speed up the time it takes to complete
an appraisal and to reduce revisions from underwriting once

our MDIA disclosure timeline. Please tell us the
date within the comments section that the mdia has been met.
2. Fill out the order form
with all of the following information:

- Borrower's name, contact name, phone numbers for each and the
borrower's email address.
3. Upload the

the APN on the appraisal and often it is a formatting issue between
the prelims and the parcel maps that appraisers commonly use.
4. Upload other relevant
- if a purchase contract - the appraiser needs it with all
addendums in order to avoid confusion over final purchase
- If a condo, send us the HOA cert - this is a common
underwriting request - that the appraiser's data match the data on
the cert. By providing the document to the appraiser, time is
saved both during the preparation of the report and by avoiding a
possible revision request.

locations, for an additional $100 appraisers can complete the
assignment in half the current turn time.
