CAPS

On our projects, we now propose to use our Complete Appraisal Process Solution, or CAPS. It is tablet based software that allows us to take all of our office data and materials to the field and review properties from the street. More information offered on CAPS software below.

CAMA

Our company’s experience with the use of computer assisted mass appraisal systems (CAMA) continues to grow with the number of contracts Pearson’s Appraisal Service is awarded. CAMA systems vary from one locality to another and likewise, our appraisers have become adept users of a number of computer systems. They also receive support from our IT staff which has years of industry specific experience.

 

              What is CAPS?

On our projects, we now propose to use our Complete Appraisal Process Solution or CAPS. It is tablet based software that allows us to take all of our office data and materials to the field and review properties from the street. We load tax data such as parcel number, address, quality grade, and sketches with county orthophotos or oblique images onto tablets and outfit a vehicle with a working surface and a camera to conduct our reviews. We are able to code any parcel that does not match the tax data or note other improvements and take an image of the property while we are there. For each project, we propose images as an optional service and they are very useful in the appeals portion of the project.

Pearson’s Appraisal Service is familiar with jurisdictions’ current tax office technology and one of the most important benefits of using PAS is after the projects are concluded the offices will have new tools to maintain the tax records and to conduct the ongoing appraisals. PAS will utilize a proven way to improve the field collection and review process of the jurisdiction’s reassessment projects.

PAS has developed and implemented Complete Appraisal Process Solutions or CAPS. The field visit phase of a reassessment is often the most costly and requires the greatest amount of resources. Based on our years of experience, we have concluded a large percentage of properties have not undergone physical changes since the last reappraisal. CAPS strength is quickly processing these unchanged parcels to ensure ample time is spent on the parcels that have undergone changes.

Building on our years of appraisal experience and today’s industry technology, our IT professionals have developed CAPS which produces more consistent, accurate results in less time with less people; ultimately allowing for more time to focus on market analysis, appeals, and other important phases of projects.

CAPS provides mass appraisers access to technologies that were previously only available in the office. CAPS is a data collection and review program that operates from a tablet computer platform. CAPS combines GIS mapping, GPS, high quality aerial photography, customized software and your existing tax data to give the appraiser the tools that produce higher quality reassessment work. The appraiser utilizes GIS maps to determine property boundaries, structure size, and other property characteristics. The appraiser will also be responsible for photographing all substantial structures. For sale, for rent, commercial tenant, and realtor information can also be collected and assigned to the corresponding parcel. The end result is a comprehensive profile compiled for each parcel that is unachievable by conventional industry methods.

All of this information is stored digitally and will be accessible to data entry personnel as well as appraisers doing a final review. This data is downloaded nightly to our company’s data servers to ensure all data is synched and backed up. CAPS primarily operates from the shoulder of the road, minimizing the number of property “walk arounds.” Our software gives appraisers the ability to flag digital property record cards requiring a traditional field visit. Changes requiring a more detailed review include items such as: major changes to sketch dimensions, discovery of unlisted buildings, and inaccessible improvements. All of the parcels requiring a more detailed review are logged in our database so that paper record cards can be printed for field reviews. Status change flags include: change, no change, office review, and field check. Reassessment notes can also be added to the CAPS record. Properties that do not require a printed card cut down on paper waste and alleviate some of the paper searching of traditional revaluations.

The Jurisdictions and Pearson’s Appraisal Service may discuss the level of involvement of CAPS during the revaluation process. Jurisdictions may prefer this method on residential properties and a traditional approach on commercial and industrial properties.
