What is Collateral Underwriter® (CU™) ?

Collateral Underwriter® (CU™) is a proprietary appraisal risk analysis application which lenders can use to submit appraisal reports for conventional loans that are Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. This system, much like Zillow, creates an automated value system for homes. The scoring system is based on a scale of 1-5. The lower the number the better (meaning less risk) and the higher the number indicates a higher risk. This application is important to understand from both a buyer and seller perspective. As a seller, now your home many have an appraisal done, but also this appraisal may be inputted into this automated system, CU, to be scored in order to eliminate any “errors” and reduce any risk.
