within an hour of your order. A CDC desktop valuation is performed by a real live licensed real estate appraiser who has experience in the local market and the subjectivity to select the most reliable comparable sales available which will yield the most accurate value range possible. Licensed appraisers are required to maintain a high level of knowledge in the valuation process through mandatory continuing education so they are up to date with current appraisal requirements. Most free web based services are computer driven without the ability to distinguish between a reliable (comparable) sale and a non-comparable sale.

Automated Valuation Models provide instant inaccurate values which cost the financial institutions as well as consumer's money and in the end create opportunities for Fraud.
