Buenaventura Appraisal Company is a leader when it comes to technology
Here at Buenaventura Appraisal Company, we always strive to be on the forefront of appraisal technology. 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 805-312-1260 for appraisal orders in Camarillo County! Why? We're glad you asked.
While appraisal fees haven't necessarily gone up over the years, the demands placed on individual appraisers have. We offer the highest quality appraisals, and cutting corners would compromise everything we stand for. Therefore, we've simply optimized our routine processes to do more in less time. The appraisers that have regularly invested in new technology have been the ones able to provide their customers with more accurate reports, better customer service and faster turnaround times.
In the past, most of our orders arrived via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we arrived at the office. It might be hours before a client even knew if we could do the order. Things are quite a bit different now and when an order is placed on the site, we get an e-mail on our phones. We often 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.
Just look at how Buenaventura Appraisal Company makes ordering easier
At Buenaventura Appraisal Company we understand it's all about "cycle time". 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 reduce the amount of time needed for your appraisal.
Buenaventura Appraisal Company is a pioneer in efficient data gathering
Gathering the data for an appraisal is a demanding process. We spend a lot of our time collecting both specific information about the subject property and general data about the local market and developing trends. Buenaventura Appraisal Company takes advantage of technology to close the gap once again.
We've learned that taking notes regularly, 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 site. And instead of using an outdated tape measure, we're seeing that more appraisers are starting to use accurate laser measuring devices that also help measure hard to access areas.
Using this technology allows us to ensure that your report is reliable and complete, requiring fewer 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 report
At a very minimum, you can expect us to deliver your final report electronically as a PDF. Generally our clients are most comfortable with receiving PDFs attached to their e-mail. It's a lot better than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to innovate 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 it was too big? We've come up with a solution for those problems, too. Whenever we send an appraisal, 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 best thing is that the file will be hosted on this site 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.
Buenaventura Appraisal Company makes things easier by using Digital Workfiles
It would probably be easier if appraisers could complete an assignment, deliver it and never be concerned with revisiting that document again. 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 must keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
Here again, Buenaventura Appraisal Company uses all the technology at our disposal technology to improve service. We store every part of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we skip the paper file folders and only need our computer to recall exactly what that assignment was about.
We just wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we use our technology daily. Investing in the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows the appraiser to deliver reports quicker, more efficiently and with higher degrees of accuracy.
