Introducing SmartAddress: Save time and boost consistency


The wait is over!  SmartAddress — TOTAL's seamless new feature for checking every subject and comp address in your report for prior uses and pointing out inconsistencies — went live today.

Watch the two-minute overview here:

As soon as you type in an address, it tells you exactly how many times you’ve used it before.  From there, easily compare all of your previous data side-by-side — not just your most recent uses.  SmartAddress flags inconsistencies with red text and warning icons.  You can then merge in entire records or pick and choose the data you want to add to your report.

It's easy to see how SmartAddress will help you save time and avoid Collateral Underwriter flags.  And when a field — like condition rating — rightfully needs to change from what you previously reported, you'll know at a glance what you need to note in order to prevent questions.

Here's what one of our beta appraisers had to say:

"When the Collateral Underwriter program was announced, I was very concerned about how I would ensure data consistency within my UAD-formatted reports.  Working in a small rural market means that I am constantly reusing the same comparables.  Now, with SmartAddress, I am confident that my UAD-formatted comparables are 100% consistent.  Every time.

SmartAddress is a must-have tool!  SmartAddress has improved my workflow and saved me time.  Now, I just type the addresses of my chosen comparables into the Sales Comparison grid, and SmartAddress instantly and automatically finds every prior use!  I can quickly review all prior uses in side-by-side format and import the preferred version right into my report.  No need to even open the Comparables Database.

Additional options allow me to only view comps with the most recent date of sale, only UAD-formatted comparables, or open prior reports where the comparables were previously used.  Comparables are now automatically imported into the Comparables Database when I sign the report.  No more worrying about whether I have imported comparables from every report." — Clinton Cook, Cook Appraisals, Inc.

You'll only find SmartAddress in TOTAL, but it will pull in property data from WinTOTAL Aurora as well.  In fact, as soon as you get the update, TOTAL will automatically copy property information from prior reports into your database.  So, if you haven't been using the Comps Database regularly, we'll have you covered without extra steps.  (And, TOTAL comes free with your membership and runs side-by-side with WinTOTAL, click here to get started.)

We're excited to get this vital time-saving and accuracy-boosting tool in your hands.  Download the update today!
