About the webinar

In this webinar, we’ve pulled together subject matter experts from the Policy and Loan Quality teams at Fannie Mae to share their knowledge with you. We’ll provide some insights on the new undervaluation risk flag in Collateral Underwriter (CU) and show you how a reviewer might use CU to review an appraisal when that flag is present. We’ll also dive into our Appraiser Quality Monitoring, sharing types of letters and how the process works. Finally, we’ll share an update on desktop appraisals, and what we’ve been seeing since that option was rolled out earlier this year.
