NHB Appraisal Services, LLC is second to none when it comes to technology
At NHB Appraisal Services, LLC, technology is the name of the game. We have the latest devices to help us get the job done quicker than ever. From smart phones, to laptops, GPS, you name it. Call us geeks. Call us nerds. Call us what you will, but by all means, call us at 502-897-0702 for appraisal orders in Jefferson County! Why? We're glad you asked.
The appraisal process has significantly evolved lately and most would say, it's a lot more demanding than in the past. Cutting corners on analysis isn't an option for an ethical appraiser. Therefore, we've simply optimized our routine processes to do more in less time. The appraisers that have steadily invested in new technology have been the ones able to provide their customers with more accurate reports, better customer service and faster turnaround times.
In the past, a lot of our orders came in via fax and were confirmed with phone calls once we arrived at the office. It might be hours before a client even knew if we could do the order. These days, when orders are entered on this website, we get a text message on our phones. We can even log into this site from the field and send back an e-mail confirmation – including the time and date for the inspection if we've been able to talk to the occupant.

We don't make you wait around for replies because we understand the speed at which we get things done directly effects your bottom-line. This website definitely reduces cycle time for us and our clients by enhancing our communications.
NHB Appraisal Services, LLC believes in working smarter
The appraisal process is nothing if not a detail-oriented procedure. We spend a great deal of time collecting the facts on the subject property and the local market data and trends. Once again, technology has stepped in to help NHB Appraisal Services, LLC.
Instead of using paper forms and pencils and then re-keying all the information back at the office, don't be surprised to see us with a tablet PC or collecting data using a program created for our phones that even lets us sketch a floorplan right on site. Rather than using that clumsy outdated tape measure, more and more appraisers are utilizing laser measuring devices that are quicker, more accurate, and can get into places that normal tape measures have always had problems with.
All of this technology ensures that the final report is as complete and without error as possible. This benefits both you and us by requiring less time for call-backs and revisions. Our goal is to save you time and money.
Here at NHB Appraisal Services, LLC we make sure you have ample options to receive your report.
At a very minimum, you can expect us to deliver your final report electronically as a PDF. Generally our clients are most familiar with receiving PDFs attached to their e-mail. It's a lot faster than the old days before e-mail. But, we've even been able to innovate report delivery with this website.
Ever lost a file that was sent to you? Or have you ever had problems sending or receiving an e-mail because it was too big? We have the technology to overcome those problems, too. When we deliver an appraisal through this website, the client is e-mailed a download link to retrieve the PDF. By bypassing email completely we can get around any problems caused by file size. And the download link is good for 90 days. So if anything happens to the file, you can log back in here and retrieve it again - saving you time, since we won't even need to run back to the computer.
Finally, we use all digital workfiles...
It would be much easier if appraisers could never have to think about an assignment again after writing and giving it to the client. However, appraisals are employed to show the condition of a property on the inspection date. Therefore, appraisers need to keep their reports for 5 years in case any disputes or other matters arise regarding the property.
Here again, NHB Appraisal Services, LLC uses all the technology available to us technology to improve service. By storing every aspect of the appraisal - notes, sketches, supporting documentation and calculations - along with the appraisal electronically, we're able to retrieve that report at any time and recall just what that report was about.
We just wanted to give you a little bit of insight into how we use our technology daily. Investing in the right software, services, gadgets and gizmos allows the appraiser to collect the appraisal data to finish the report faster and more accurately than previously possible.
