Don’t be surprised when you see us using a tablet PC or iPad while at the property! In order to precisely measure houses and draw floor plans, we use one of two state-of-the-art techniques; 3D LiDAR scanning devices or Leica distance meters. When utilizing scanning technology, we use a 3D LiDAR scanning device coupled with an award winning application called CubiCasa, which generates a customized floor plan of the subject property dwelling with interior walls, doors, fixtures, etc. included at no extra charge. When using Leica distance meters, the dwelling is precisely measured with a Leica distance meter device. The dimensions are then input into the tablet application to create the floor plan. Through cloud technology, the property data is synced straight to the office so our staff can get to work on the file. This translates into a faster turnaround time for the customer.

All of this technology ensures that the final report is as comprehensive and without error as possible. This works to our advantage as well as our clients advantage by necessitating less time for call-backs and revisions. Our goal is to save you time and money without sacrificing quality or service.

Digital Workfile Technology

All appraisers must keep their reports and all supporting data, aka work file, 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, Professional Appraisers of Texas uses all the technology at our disposal 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 We skip the outdated hard copies and only need our computer to recall all the details and data regarding the appraisal report.

These are just a few examples of how we use technology daily. Utilizing the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows our appraisers to collect the appraisal data to finish the report faster and more accurately than previously possible.
