The Appraiser’s Business Companion

ABC’s Appraiser’s Business Companion is proud to introduce ‘The Companion’.  The Companion is an online tool for real estate appraisers that provides guidance with the appraisal process.  With The Companion’s worksheets, in just minutes, you will be able to determine land values, economic life, effective age, highest and best use, adjustments for amenities, etc. while building a  well supported appraisal and a stronger work file at the same time.  The Companion also goes through the appraisal report field-by-field, instructing you as to what should be (and what is required to be) placed into each field.
