A revolutionary approach to valuations in Canada

The FCT Valuation Solutions suite of products and services modernizes the appraisal management process through a cascading model that interprets data in real-time. This approach uses proprietary, data-driven, automated technology, and is coupled with the expertise of the best appraisers in the industry.

Our suite of products provides you with optimal solutions for every level of qualifying parameter and ensures lenders are getting the fastest, lowest risk and most cost-effective appraisal.

Not only do we provide a smarter, more reliable way to manage appraisals; we also offer the added protection of an insurance wrapper around the valuation*–regardless of which solution the property qualifies for.

*Subject to the issuance of a policy, and such terms and conditions of the policy.
