DataQuick, a provider of real estate information solutions, today released RiskFinder Distress at ASF 2012.
RiskFinder Distress will provide investors, lenders and servicers the ability to search and analyze the risk levels of distressed properties nationwide. It enables users to track and analyze key distress events throughout the life cycle of the loan.
"There is a significant opportunity in distressed properties if companies understand the risks and potential loss severity of each loan," said John Walsh, president of DataQuick. "For buyers, the low cost of distressed properties provides attractive investment value, while servicers and owners need to understand how to mitigate their potential losses."
DataQuick's RiskFinder Distress allows investors to track foreclosure, short sale, real estate owned (REO) or for sale by auction trends. The trends can be analyzed by geographic level and time period, with coverage available nationwide and by ZIP code.
"The biggest challenge in clearing out the inventory of distressed homes is in identifying the best strategy for limiting losses or for a profitable acquisition," Walsh said. "RiskFinder Distress gives users the information and analysis needed to not only track distress trends, but analyze their influences on home prices and predicting loss severity."
