Lots of great projects are in the works here at CRT these days. Some so amazing, they still don’t have names!
Today however, I would like to announce the official release (we had a soft launch at the last RESO meeting) of the Appraisal Dashboard. This project was made possible through a 6 month collaboration with RMLS of Minnesota, Live Valuation and the Center for REALTOR Technology. It was actually inspired by an appraiser getting the ear of Ed Newman from RMLS, who then got the ear of CRT who then got real jazzed up about this. This all coincided with some fortuitous events that led us to choose Live Valuation — who by the way, has one amazing programmer (Kannan), which you will soon agree to after you see the demo and the functionality, and the all out pure slick of this application.
So what the heck is the Appraisal Dashboard? Well, the basic summary is, it is a PHP web application that interfaces with live MLS data (MLS authentication and access required) and provides a visual search interface. The data can be exported (again, please refer to your particular MLS data rules/regs) into various formats that can be used with the Uniform Residential Appraisal Report and the MISMO format.
That is perfectly clear right? Sort of. But in order to get the real WOW of this, check out all the video demos.
I want, how much?
Would you buy this for $199.99? What about $99.99? How about completely FREE? Yes that’s right, this project is another member benefit and resource from the National Association of REALTORS. To learn more and download the software (installation and setup required), please visit the Support Forum
I’m really excited about this project, just from the sheer combination of slick front end to live data consumption. Again, I want to give another shout-out to Kannan. He took my suggestions and not only met them but added three new pieces of slickness to it.
These are the type of projects that CRT is geared towards, and the type of collaboration that we are looking for. Find a need, fill the need and make it available to everyone to take and run with and make even better.
I think that was my way of suggesting, if you have some ideas, let us know about them!
Enjoy the dashboard, and let us know your feedback.
