At Apprai.se we show that human intuition and instincts are better at appraising homes than the latest computerized valuation models*. The smell of a home, the style of the homeowner and recent renovations are all calculations that are often ignored by automatic valuation models yet are instantaneously valued by the human brain from educated home buyers and savvy neighbourhood agents. Our Apprai.se valueTM is calculated by weighting the opinions of our appraiser's based on their experience and track record at predicting the final sale price of properties in that neighbourhood.
Neighbourhood awards are given to the most accurate apprai.sers in each neighbourhood based on points earned for appraisals within a neighbourhood's boundaries. These awards require a minimum of 10 appraisals.
If credibility and bragging rights are not enough of a motivation to start appraising, we figure some good old cash might do the trick. That's right! We are offering $5 on each listing to the most accurate appraiser (* accuracy must be >98% & photo verification required).
Apprai.se points last 18 months in order to keep users active and knowledgeable in changing market conditions. Scores are rounded to the nearest percentage point. Valuations entered on or after the acceptance date will not earn points. Apprai.se rules are subject to change without notice.
Apprai.se is a fun, innovative and rewarding way for real estate junkies, agents and experts to prove their skills. Apprai.se'rs are given points based on their accuracy at predicting the final sale price of a property using the table below:
