SearchTec is a licensed Appraisal Management Company in Pennsylvania (License # AMC000138) that works with lenders and a panel of state certified appraisers to facilitate the ordering, tracking and delivery of appraisal reports.
Automated Valuation Model (AVM): Provides real estate property valuations using mathematical modelling combined with a database. Most AVMs calculate a property’s value at a specific point in time by analyzing values of comparable properties. We currently provide the Freddie Mac HVE and Corelogic PASS.
FNMA 2055 Exterior: This exterior report provides neighbourhood data, comparable closed sales, an adjustment grid, two exterior photos and a location map.
URAR 1004: The URAR (Uniform Residential Appraisal Report) is the most comprehensive reporting format. This report contains a detailed inspection of the subject, analysis of the market, and three comparable sales. Included in the package are photos of the front, rear and street view of the subject, location map showing subject and comparable sales, floor plan and certification and limiting conditions.
ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS: Other Reports are available upon your request.
FLOOD DETERMINATIONS from SearchTec are provided from sources with current FEMA information: Community names, panel suffixes, flood zones and map revision dates.
Our flood certificates can be sent electronically right to your computer, instantly, so you can have a copy in your hands immediately upon your request as long as the property can be correctly identified.
FLOOD WATCH is Search Tec’s monitoring system. When you order the Life of Loan Monitoring we will monitor the property and when FEMA issues a revision, SearchTec will provide a new flood certificate for any of these properties at the Lender’s request. If the loan has been assigned to another party, we will send the new form directly to the new Lender.
