How We Think
Most appraisals have been performed the same way for the last century using just a few comps and sparse data. There’s a better way. Our telescopes are aimed at removing the subjectivity from real estate appraisal. The advent of ‘big data’ coupled with technology and sound logic has made it possible to form an opinion of value that is truly evidence based and objective.
The overarching tenet of the appraisal profession is to “uphold the public trust.” This is made possible when the appraiser remains an unbiased third party. In order to remain so, the appraiser can’t play the role of an advocate. Ethical valuation based on evidence, using high quality data is how we remain fair and unbiased.
