Quality Control

LCI is committed to providing the highest quality residential valuation services possible. Every appraisal we deliver passes through a checkpoint system which confirms completeness and other basic quality control issues.

Some appraisal management companies use automated review systems that attempt to analyze the data selection and value conclusions of the appraiser. Experience has shown us such systems are often unreliable, and counterproductive. These automated quality evaluations tend to reduce efficiency by flagging those issues that an experienced and competent real estate appraiser would have already identified and addressed.

LCI manages quality proactively, by insisting on the best work from both staff and appraisers. Instead of using automation, or employing underpaid, unqualified staff to review every appraiser's analysis (thereby reducing efficiency by unnecessarily second guessing the methodology and opinion of the professional expert), LCI takes the commonsense approach of holding the appraiser to the high standards of competence and professionalism already required of them as licensed professionals.

In addition to working diligently to deliver high quality appraisal reports as quickly as possible, LCI has dedicated an experienced portion of its staff to handling the inevitable lender stipulations, conditions, and questions that follow the initial delivery of the appraisal report.

LCI has senior professional appraisers on staff who are always available to help clarify appraisal issues, and offer appropriate solutions to the more difficult and complicated valuation problems.

Our technology keeps you informed every step of the way with complete order tracking and online status updates. Our friendly a staff is dedicated to service your account every day, seven days a week.
