"We know Appraisal Management Companies put a lot of pressure on appraisers to complete their assignments quickly," stated David Turner, Chief Corporate Appraiser for United States Appraisals. "We hear about many of those same AMCs paying slowly. United States Appraisals will pay for completed reports that pass our quality review on a weekly basis. By shortening the pay cycle, we provide an incentive to complete our assignments faster by providing the appraiser with an immediate reward for their hard work."

United States Appraisals' quality review process, which includes an automated review of over 2,000 data points prior to a manual review by a certified residential appraiser, ensures that underwriter-ready reports are delivered to its clients. With a shorter pay cycle, these quality reports will be delivered even quicker.

"We believe this move underscores our commitment to the appraiser community," said Aaron Fowler, President of United States Appraisals. "Speed and quality are critical to the mortgage industry. Delivering high quality reports faster, while rewarding our appraisers, provides a win-win situation."
