Pearson’s Appraisal Service, Inc. has been successfully providing appraisal services to Virginia and North Carolina counties and municipalities for the past 35 years; performing equitable revaluations and assisting tax offices with a variety of appraisal services. With our large staff of professional appraisers, we are able to provide assurance to our clients that their revaluation project is completed in a timely manner by experienced personnel.


Our success in the field of appraising can be greatly attributed to our dedicated and competent appraisal staff. We currently staff over 40 employees, many specializing in specific roles in the reappraisal process.

Pearson is licensed as a Virginia and North Carolina Certified General Appraiser and together with Robert Pearson, Jr.  incorporated their appraisal company in 1981 in the states of Virginia and North Carolina. Since our incorporation, we have completed over 200 turn-key appraisal projects and have appraised over 3 million parcels.

Services Provided

Mass Appraisals

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 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 have 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 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 using cameras while working from our appraiser's vehicles. We are able to code any parcel that does not match the tax data, 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. It 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.
