Add MLS data to your report automatically

An appraiser's job is about analysis, not data entry.  But most appraisers are still printing the MLS sheet out and transcribing comparable data into the forms.  Instead of losing 20 minutes per report, use TOTAL's MLS Text Importer to transfer comp data automatically in the report, in grid format.  Read more


Real appraiser story

"I never understood the importance of Vault until I had computer issues.  As an appraiser with constant deadlines, I don't have time for computers to malfunction and crash.  But when it happened, I was able to sign in to my Vault account and simply copy the files I lost to my new computer.  This feature is as important as technical support.  I cannot imagine my appraisal business without the peace of mind Vault provides."
