    Scot Rose of Class Valuation on the future of appraisal innovation

    On today's episode, we sit down with Scot Rose, the Chief Innovation Officer at Class Valuation to talk about the way that some lenders are adopting technology around their appraisal evaluation processes that will prepare them to innovate on the other side of this turbulent market. 

    Clayton and Scot unpack some of the things that Class Valuation is building that'll help drive business, as we're seeing market uncertainty put a lot of people on the sidelines, and only the most strategic players are still focused on the horizon.

    They also talked about some of their inorganic strategies of how they're looking at other AMC and tech acquisitions to propel the business forward. Scott gives a real glimpse into how he thinks the future appraisal will look and how the term "appraisal modernization" might become less prominent in the future.

Nathan Smoyer ,

One of the few worth listening to

I rarely listen to podcasts, despite hosting my own show. But this is one of the few I frequently bookmark episodes to listen to when traveling or out on a run. Clayton has been CRUSHING the real estate podcast game. Don’t sleep on this one.

As for reading this comment during an interview, let’s skip that part and instead have you give some instructions on perfecting smoked brisket.

Tremendous content to the point

This podcast is tremendous in the sense that they dont waste your time. The load up on high quality content, present it, hear a couple opinions and move onto the next topic. Theres no small talk. 5*

Edistired ,

So insightful and relevant. Industry must

It’s rare that I take the time to, not only rate, but write about a podcast or article. This is a homerun. Relevant, real conversations with leaders on topics that matter to the industry and the economy. Look forward to Season 2.
