ACE+ PDR is one of five collateral valuation offerings that allows lenders to originate eligible loans without an appraisal. Additional property information is physically collected on-site by trained data collectors using the proprietary Freddie Mac PDR dataset, in lieu of an appraisal.

ACE+ PDR Expands Eligibility

Effective August 2, 2023, this collateral valuation option will expand to include eligible purchase transactions with an LTV up to 80%. For eligible loans, lenders can skip the appraisal.

Why use ACE+ PDR?

Alleviate Appraiser Capacity Concerns

How ACE+ PDR Works

  • Step 1: Submit loan to Loan Product Advisor® (LPASM) before ordering an appraisal.
  • Step 2: Review the LPA Feedback Certificate to see whether the loan is eligible for ACE+ PDR.
  • Step 3: If eligible, order a PDR.

Documentation Requirements

For each loan using ACE+ PDR, you must obtain a PDR that includes all the data listed in the Freddie Mac PDR dataset and the language included in the PDR Modified Certifications and Assumptions and Limiting Conditions.

Use the Beyond ACE (bACE) API to Improve Efficiency and Data Quality

You have the option to use the bACE API, which will provide feedback messaging to help you assess PDRs, make any necessary updates or changes and more conveniently submit PDRs to Freddie Mac. The API currently uses the Freddie Mac PDR dataset v2.0 and will transition to the joint Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae Uniform Property Dataset (UPD) in the future.
