Matrix Appraisal Group: Technically Advantaged AppraisersWe're just going to come right out and admit something: We thrive on the latest nerdy gadgets. 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 (623) 810-8353 for appraisal orders in Maricopa County! Why? We're glad you asked.
The appraisal process has significantly evolved lately and demands more than ever from appraisers. Cutting corners on analysis isn't an option for an ethical appraiser. Therefore, the logical place to save time is in our daily workflow. The appraisers that have continuously embraced new technology have been the ones able to consistently satisfy their customers with more accurate reports, better customer service and faster turnaround times.
Way back when, most of our orders arrived via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we got back into the office. Often, in this scenario, it might of taken quite a while to hear back to see if the order could be taken. Things are quite a bit different now and when an order is placed on the site, 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.
Innovating the Ordering Experience
When you order from Matrix Appraisal Group 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.
Matrix Appraisal Group believes in working smarterOne of the most time consuming parts of an appraisal is gathering the data. We spend a lot of our time obtaining both specific information about the subject property and general data about the local market and developing trends. Matrix Appraisal Group takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
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 an app written for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on site. And instead of using an old tape measure, more and more appraisers are adopting laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.
We combine all of these different technologies to ensure that the final report is complete and without error. This helps both you and us by necessitating less time for call-backs and revisions. Our goal is to save you time and money.
Appraisal Report DeliveryDelivery 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 a lot faster than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to improve on e-mail with report delivery 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. Whenever we send an appraisal, 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.
Digital Workfile TechnologyIt would probably be easier if appraisers could never have to think about an assignment again after writing and giving it to the client. But one of the purposes of an appraisal is as a legal document outlining the condition of a property on a specific date. Therefore, appraisers are required by law to 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.
Here again, Matrix Appraisal Group 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 can pull up the entire file whenever it's needed and 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 save time without cutting corners and deliver a better product to you, our client.
