Appraisal Atlas™ work history uploader
Appraisal Atlas is an utility that allows you to upload your work history to generate your experience score and show off your geographic competency.
Clients Are Looking For You
Included with Appraiser’s Portfolio™, you can now include your work history in your portfolio. Use our Appraisal Atlas software to upload the date and location data of your work history to produce a visual map of your entire work history so businesses in the industry can instantly see your geographic competency!
Appraisal Atlas also uses this information to generate your personal experience score. Displayed in the AppraisalWorld Directory, your score may increase your opportunity to gain appraisal assignments when lenders and homeowners search for an appraiser.
Rest assured, Atlas only uploads data that is compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice.
Manage your appraiser work experience history with Atlas
In addition to loading your work experience into the Directory, you can also use Atlas to update, view and manage your appraisal work history or even view a report with just the click of a mouse!
- Search for other assignments that may have been done in an area so that you can easily "borrow" comments or other pertinent data
- Open reports directly if a matching file was found in the Reports folder set at initial login
- Schedule appointments by being able to view on a map where your orders are
The result is that appraisers are given higher listing rankings based on actual work experience and the neighborhood in which they have expertise—factors that are critical to the accuracy and value of the AppraisalWorld Directory's search function.
You can trust the power of Atlas
While other appraiser directories search for appraisers by only county or zip codes, AppraisalWorld's patent-pending method uses a proprietary algorithm, which incorporates many factors, including appraisal date and locations of completed appraisal assignments ("Geo-Points").
frequently asked questions
What is Appraisal Atlas?
Appraisal Atlas® is an utility that allows you to easily upload the date and location data of your appraisal files while still keeping all confidential information unrevealed. The information is used to elevate your GEAR Score for your AppraisalWorld™ Directory listing so you can be ranked highest in your most qualified area. Atlas was created paying special attention to you and your client’s privacy so there are no confidentiality agreements violated. The score will be relied upon by lenders and AMCs as a measure of trust — much like a credit score — when they search for you in the Directory.
Why should I upload my work history information with Atlas?
Your work history will show your area of geographic competency on a visual map illustrating the areas that you have worked in the past and are most qualified in. It is also included in the calculation of your GEAR score in the AppraisalWorld Directory. Uploading your work experience to your listing results in a more prominent ranking because you generate a higher score than a competitor who has not uploaded as many appraisal report work experience dates for that area.
What does AppraisalWorld do with my work history that is uploaded by Atlas?
AppraisalWorld extracts the effective date of the appraisal and address of the subject properties in your work experience database. The effective date of the appraisal is used to determine the relative timeframe of your research of market data for that area.
No private information in violation of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice is uploaded. For example, the names of the property owners and the price for the property sold are NOT uploaded into Atlas. That data remains on your computer system. In addition, the individual "points" are not visible to anyone and are only used internally during calculation of the score.
What are the Minimum System Requirements?
Windows XP, SP2 or higher, Internet connection, 1024x768 display resolution. You must have a FREE AppraisalWorld Directory Listing to download and use Atlas.
Will using Appraisal Atlas violate USPAP?
Appraisal Atlas does not violate USPAP because no private information will be uploaded to AppraisalWorld. The only items that get uploaded are the property address and the date of the inspection, which is either pubic or non-private information.
How will Atlas help my business?
Atlas will help your business by making your directory listing more prominent to the clients looking for appraisers in the AppraisalWorld Directory—resulting in more potential job orders!
