Marketwise Appraisal, LLC leads the pack when it comes to technology
Here at Marketwise Appraisal, LLC, we always strive to be on the forefront of appraisal technology. From smart phones, to laptops, GPS, you name it. Call us geeks. Call us nerds. Call us what you will, but by all means, call us at 602.690.1414 for appraisal orders in Maricopa County! Why? We're glad you asked.
In recent years, appraisals have become more scrutinized and require more in depth analysis. Cutting corners on analysis isn't an option for an ethical appraiser. Therefore, we've simply optimized our routine processes to do more in less time. We strive to be the very best, and we've found that using the very latest in new technology allows us to provide more credible reports, quicker turnaround times and excellent customer service.
Years ago, the majority of orders arrived via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we got back to the office. It might be hours before a client even knew if we could do the order. Things are quite a bit different now and when an order is placed on the site, we receive a text message on our phones. We often log into this site from the field and send back an e-mail confirmation – including the time and date for the inspection if we've been able to talk to the occupant.
Innovating the Ordering Experience
Marketwise Appraisal, LLC understands that real estate is all about timeliness. We aim to reduce waiting between communications since the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website definitely reduces cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.
Marketwise Appraisal, LLC is a pioneer in efficient data gathering
The appraisal process is nothing if not a detail-oriented procedure. We spend quite a bit of time obtaining the facts on the subject property and the local market data and trends. Marketwise Appraisal, LLC takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
We've learned that taking notes the standard way, using pencil and paper, generally takes longer since we we have to enter everything back in at the office. Don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using an application created for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on the spot. Rather than using that clumsy old tape measure, more and more appraisers are starting to use laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.
Using this technology allows us to ensure that your report is on the money, requiring fewer call-backs and revisions. A real money saver for busy appraisal clients.
Appraisal Report Delivery
The majority of our appraisals are delivered through e-mail as PDF documents. Most of our clients prefer e-mail because we're all accustomed to getting attachments like PDFs in our mail. It's a lot better than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to improve on e-mail with how you receive your report with this website.
Ever lost a file that was sent to you? Or have you ever had problems sending or receiving an e-mail because of the file size? We have the technology to overcome those problems, too. When we deliver an appraisal through this website, the client gets a link sent to their email to retrieve the PDF. So, at that point, it doesn't matter if all the extra photos and maps in the report result in a large file that would normally be blocked by e-mail. And the best thing is that the file will be hosted on this site for 90 days. So if anything happens to the file, you can log back in here and retrieve it again - saving you time, since we won't even need to run back to the computer.
Marketwise Appraisal, LLC makes things easier by using Digital Workfiles
It would probably be easier if appraisers could never have to think about an assignment again after writing and giving it to the client. However, appraisals are employed to document the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers need to keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
Here again, Marketwise Appraisal, LLC uses all the technology available to us technology to improve service. We store every part of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we skip the outdated hard copies and only need our computer to recall exactly what that report was about.
These are just a few examples of how we use technology daily. Investing in the right tools, along with the appraisal know-how that you've grown to expect allows the appraiser to deliver reports quicker, more efficiently and with higher degrees of accuracy.
