Here at A. M. Appraisals, we always strive to be on the forefront of appraisal technology. We use the best and newest technology available today to bring you high quality, accurate appraisals.

If you asked any number of appraisers, most would agree that appraising is more complicated than it used to be. We put quality first, but we know that turnaround time is a big concern for many clients. Therefore, we've found that the best place to save time is in our our workflow. The appraisers that have regularly adopted new technology have been the ones able to consistently satisfy their customers with more accurate reports, better customer service and faster turnaround times.

Ordering and Tracking

Years ago, a great deal 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 can even 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.

At A. M. Appraisals we understand it's all about "cycle time". We don't make you wait around for replies because we understand the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website has proven to reduce cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.

A. M. Appraisals believes in working smarter

Gathering the data for an appraisal is an intensive process. We spend a great deal of time gathering both specific information about the subject property and general data about the local market and developing trends. Once again, technology has stepped in to help A. M. Appraisals.

Instead of using paper forms and pencils and then re-keying all the information back at the office, don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using a program written for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on site. And instead of using an outdated tape measure, we're seeing that more appraisers are beginning to use laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.

All of this technology ensures that the final report is as comprehensive and accurate as possible. This helps both you and us by requiring less time for call-backs and revisions. A real money saver for busy appraisal clients.

Here at A. M. Appraisals we want you to know you have ample ways to receive your report.

Delivery of appraisals as PDF files through e-mail is definitely the standard these days. Generally our clients are most familiar with receiving PDFs attached to their e-mail. It's much more efficient than the old days when everything was on paper. 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 it was too big? 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 download link is good for 90 days. So if anything happens to the file, you can log back in here and retrieve it again without even calling us or waiting for us to get to a computer so we can send it again.

A. M. Appraisals makes things easier by using Digital Workfiles

It would be much easier if appraisers could complete an assignment, deliver it and never worry about revisiting that document again. However, appraisals are used to show the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers must keep their reports for 5 years, allowing them to recall any appraisal at any time to either defend the valuation or to be used in other legal proceedings.

To sum it all up, A. M. Appraisals 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 paper file folders and only need our computer to recall just what that job was about.

We just wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we use our technology daily. Investing in the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows the appraiser to collect the appraisal data to finish the report faster and more accurately than previously possible.
