Appraisal Technology Assessment

I was selected by an Residential Appraisal Firm in Virginia to test and evaluate appraisal specific and industry related technological tools. In addition, I will develop standard operational procedures for users that will be the design platform for the migration of systems over to a newer technologies. This could present a complete overhaul of legacy systems and an introduction of new technologies that will increase Certified Residential Appraisers and Staff's productivity. This presents an exciting opportunity to fully update two appraisal offices with the very best in technology that is available to appraisers and to create proprietary systems. This would in turn help create a competitive advantage against other appraisal firms, which have a tendency to not accept advanced technology. The learning curve will be steep for older appraisers. However, the payoff is potentially very substantial.
