Here are several appraisal software tools worth checking out.


DataMaster Pro is an appraisal data management software package that includes market analysis, neighborhood analysis, automated creation of strong workfiles for defensible analyses, CompTracker personal comparable database, and other features such as plat maps and office workfile sharing. This software has been built for appraisers, by appraisers, and the company boasts that you can save over 60 minutes per appraisal report with DataMaster Pro.  


Spark is another popular appraisal software option. You can use it for data importing, trend analysis, cost approach analysis, and digital workfile compilation. DwellingCost data and site value tools (extraction, allocation, vacant land sales) are included with a Spark subscription. Additionally, Synapse by Spark is a useful tool for supporting appraisal adjustments. Synapse allows you to analyze large groups of data via multiple methods in order to reconcile reliable adjustments.
