Hertzler Appraisals is constantly working on ways to speed up the appraisal process and lessen turn around times.
Our newest innovation is a Leica Disto 7500i laser measurer.
Although I have had several laser devices in the past (a Lowe's special), which I rarely used because of reliability, this new Disto is extremely accurate and can be used indoors and outdoors.
This device should decrease the amount of time needed on-site and reduce the number of shrubs I need to climb through. I have been using an IPad for several years, which increased
the accuracy of building sketches because they are closed out on the job site as opposed to coming back to the office and making sure my numbers add up properly.
Each year we try to add something new to the efficiency of the appraisal process.
Using mobile sketching, going paperless in the office, accepting credit cards, and now the new laser measuring device. Hertzler Appraisals is trying to stay innovative and continue learning.
These devices help speed up the appraisals process but cannot replace the knowledge we have in the Williamsburg housing market and our expertise in the art of appraising.
