JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc.: Technically Advantaged AppraisersAt JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc., technology is the name of the game. We always research the latest in high-tech tools. We use the best and newest technology around to complete your appraisal without sacrificing quality or accuracy.
If you asked any number of appraisers, most would agree that appraising is more complicated than it used to be. We offer the highest quality appraisals, and cutting corners goes against our core values. Therefore, the logical place to save time is in our daily workflow. Our continuous efforts to be the best have convinced us that keeping up with new technology allows us to provide more accurate reports in less time and excellent customer service.
Ordering and TrackingIn the past, most of our orders were ordered via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we got back into the office. Often, in this scenario, it might of taken far too long to hear back to see if the order could be taken. These days, when orders are entered on this website, we receive an e-mail 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.
When you order from JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc. you can expect us to be concerned about your deadlines. 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. Through features on this website, we can actually speed up the entire appraisal process.
Data Gathering ToolsOne of the most time consuming parts of an appraisal is gathering the data. We spend a great deal of time obtaining the facts on the subject property and the local market data and trends. Once again, technology has stepped in to help JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc..
We've learned that taking notes traditionally, 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 a program created for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on the spot. And instead of using an old tape measure, more and more appraisers are beginning to use accurate laser measuring devices that also help measure hard to access areas.
We combine all of these different technologies to ensure that your final report is thorough and conclusive. This works to both our advantages by necessitating less time for call-backs and revisions. A real money saver for busy appraisal clients.
Modern appraisal report delivery ensures our clients have a number of ways to get their reportAt a very minimum, you can expect us to deliver your final report electronically as a PDF. Most of our clients prefer e-mail because we're all accustomed to getting attachments like PDFs in our mail. It's a lot faster 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.
Everyone knows how frustrating it is to lose a file. Or have you ever had an attachment blocked because of the file size? We have the technology to overcome those problems, too. When we deliver an appraisal through this website, the client is e-mailed a download link to retrieve the PDF. By bypassing email completely we can get around any problems caused by file size. And the download link is good for 90 days. So if you lose 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.
Digital Workfile TechnologyIt would be great if appraisers could complete an assignment, deliver it and never be concerned with revisiting that document again. However, appraisals are employed to show 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, JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc. leverages our investment in technology to improve service. By storing every aspect of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we skip the outdated file cabinets and only need our computer to recall just what that report was about.
We just wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we use our technology daily. Utilizing the right tools, along with the appraisal know-how that you've grown to expect allows the appraiser to collect the appraisal data to finish the report faster and more accurately than previously possible.
