Freddie Mac has reduced closing times and closing costs through their Loan Advisor Suite®. Loan applicants who are buying a home or refinancing an existing mortgage loan may be eligible for an automated appraisal alternative. In some cases, borrowers may be able to save as much as $500, and more importantly, reduce closing times as much as seven to 10 days.

Freddie Mac's automated collateral evaluation (ACE) assesses the need for a traditional appraisal by looking at several different factors.

  • Leveraging proprietary models
  • Using data from multiple listing services and public records
  • Looking at historical home values to determine collateral risks

Loan Advisor Suite is Freddie Mac's smart end-to-end technology solution that assesses credit, capacity, and collateral to help lenders validate the quality of the loans they originate.

ACE for qualified refinances has been available since June 19 and ACE for qualified home purchases will be available starting Sept. 1, 2017.

David Lowman, Executive Vice President of Freddie Mac's Single-Family Business, said the following about ACE:

By leveraging big data and advanced analytics, as well as 40+ years of historical data, we're cutting costs and speeding up the closing process for borrowers. At the same time, we're providing immediate collateral representation and warranty relief to lenders. This is just one example of how we are reimagining the mortgage process to create a better experience for consumers and lenders."

Find out if your property is eligible for ACE

You will need to ask your lender to submit the loan data through Loan Product Advisor®. If ACE determines that the estimated value of your home is acceptable, the lender may receive immediate representation and warranty relief related to the value, condition, and marketability of the property upon delivery of the loan to Freddie Mac.
