Provider of loan due diligence, surveillance, REO management, valuations, and consulting services to the mortgage and real estate industries, Clayton Holdings LLC, recently announced its newest acquisition: ValuAmerica, Inc., a Pittsburgh-based, national title agency, appraisal management company, and technology provider.
ValuAmerica is a national title agency and a fully-compliant appraisal management company with coverage across all 3,143 counties in the U.S. The company's award-winning technology platform, ValuNet xsp, helps mortgage lenders and their vendors streamline and manage their supply chains and operational workflows.
“The acquisition of ValuAmerica significantly expands the scope of title and valuation services Clayton offers our mortgage clients and continues to show our commitment to being a complete solution provider to the mortgage and real estate industries,” said Joe D’Urso, president of Clayton. “In addition to a full range of title and closing services, we are able to offer a full suite of valuation products—from full appraisals and BPOs to enhanced automated valuation estimates (AVEs)—as well as flood, property and mortgage information.”
Clayton, which is based in Shelton, Connecticut, noted that ValuAmerica will continue to operate under its current brand and at its current headquarters in Pittsburgh. ValuAmerica’s senior management team, which is led by Shawn Murphy, will remain on board and continue to provide the same level of quality products and service to its clients.
No other terms of the transaction were announced.
“Joining with Clayton and its parent, Radian, gives us the resources to further develop the technology, infrastructure and vendor networks required for today’s more competitive, compliance-focused environment," Murphy said. "Our entire management team is pleased to join the Clayton family and excited to be a part of its future growth.”
