Desktop Review – Easy to Implement and Affordable

Tele-working provides the perfect opportunity to locate source data, analyze, scrub, fix what you can at the desktop, and identify only those properties that will need an on-site visit. The result: good data and the least number of parcels requiring a field visit in the future.

Whether the objective is to keep employees busy when practicing social distancing, or just employing cost effective “Data First” best practices, using data that’s already available in-house or from a myriad of public and private sources, makes sense. Providing employees with 24/7 remote access from home or office, to data in your jurisdiction’s secure corner of the cloud, is fast and affordable.Examples of what they could be doing:

Verify data (Grade, Condition, Style, Ext Wall, Roof Style and Material).

Flag properties that need a photo or sketch. identify outliers.

Review neighborhood boundaries, flagging boundaries that have shifted.

Identify improvements visible on the aerial imagery and not in CAMA.

Generate cost approach reports.

Run sales ratio reports, identify values that are too high or too low.

Narrow the scope of work to only those properties that need a field review

PLUS: consider these ballpark prices and the potential Return on Investment
