What is a BPO?

12 Oct What is a BPO?

A BPO is a Broker’s Price Opinion which is an evaluation of a home/property typically done by driving by the property, reviewing public data sources and recent comparable sales. This is ordered by the mortgage servicer and or lender as an alternative to a full appraisal of the property and is done after the loan is considered in default or upon loan modification.

Typically, a debtor is unaware that a BPO has been done on their property, much less that they are being charged for the BPO.
