Clear Capital(R) Named Master Distributor of Freddie Mac Home Value Explorer
and Home Value Calibrator

Clear Capital Has Been Added as a Freddie Mac Distributor of the Freddie Mac
Home Value Explorer(R) (HVE(R)) and Home Value Calibrator(R) (Calibrator)

TRUCKEE, Calif., Jan. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clear Capital®
(, the premium provider of data, collateral risk
assessment, and real estate asset valuation and analytics, has been added as a
distributor of Freddie Mac Home Value Explorer (HVE) and Home Value Calibrator
(Calibrator). Based in McLean, Virginia, Freddie Mac (OTC:FMCC) is one of the
nation's largest investors in residential mortgages.

In 1997, Freddie Mac first offered the robust data in HVE and Calibrator to a
broader audience through approved distributors. Distributors applied and were
selected based on their reach of end users. Clear Capital has been added as
the newest distributor of Freddie Mac HVE and Calibrator tools. Clear
Capital's broad customer reach and solid track record working with Freddie
Mac's Servicing and REO Divisions were key in making this decision.

The Freddie Mac HVE and Calibrator tools have long been regarded as among the
most accurate, highest quality automated valuation models (AVMs) available.
This quality is a direct reflection of the volume of home loans and unique
data available only to Freddie Mac. Both tools have outstanding reputations in
the mortgage finance industry. These highly used tools boast over 20 years of
proprietary, historical property data, and over 20 years of practical use and

"We are excited about the opportunity to help our clients benefit from Freddie
Mac's HVE AVM," says Kevin Marshall, President of Clear Capital. "We are
confident that Clear Capital's service levels, technology, and history of
partnership with our clients combined with the years of validation of HVE will
enable our clients to more easily incorporate it into their valuation
decisions. It's a great AVM, and we can make it easier for people to order and
use it."

The leader in the collateral valuation space, Clear Capital's products offer
tailored solutions for its customers' challenges and needs. "Our customers
consider us an extension of their on-site teams," says Marshall. "We work hard
to identify the right product, not an off-the-shelf solution. As an
independent provider of a range of AVMs, we objectively recommend the optimal
solution to our customers. This judicious approach appeals to Freddie Mac."

"In addition to our premium line of products, we stake our reputation on our
exceptional customer service," says Marshall. "We treat our customers,
vendors, and one another with the same level of respect. This is a very
important step in accomplishing shared goals."

HVE is an AVM that delivers a confidence value and a forecast standard
deviation. It generates a property value within seconds, has extensive
coverage, encompasses several models, and is one of the most precise AVMs
available with industry high hit rates. HVE gives Clear Capital customers
access to arguably the most healthy database of property records. The benefits
of this tool are diverse: as a standalone AVM, a rule set in our ClearQC™
product, or coupled with our Property Condition Inspection for compliance with
IAG Guidelines.

Calibrator is a quality control tool that delivers a score to help identify
loans with potentially inflated collateral valuations. The Calibrator helps
Clear Capital customers identify outlier loans needing further evaluation,
prioritizing workflow, and as a quality control measurement. Like HVE,
Calibrator results can be incorporated as a rule in Clear Capital's automated
quality assurance service, ClearQC.

Clear Capital only brings to market products that offer meaningful solutions
for its customers. The company is pleased to provide its customers with one of
the highest rated and reputed AVMs in the country. To understand how the
Freddie Mac HVE or Calibrator can help you make precise, impartial decisions
quickly, please contact Clear Capital at 530.550.2525.
