    All true Lamarr, appraisers as a whole have not marketed their skills very well and are now on the outside of technological advances. WIth so much data out in the real estate realms, clients no longer want or need a full appraisal for every transaction involving real estate. But for those who want the most protection, or who have the most difficult problems to figure out, an appraiser will always be the only alternative.

    I believe the application you described would be very influential on how the industry would view the value of property. Since the objectivity of an MLS AVM would be to provide the broadest comparison and collection of relevant information regarding the property, backed up maybe by the formal appraisal, it would be very interesting to see what impact it would have on the perception of value. At least it would be great to finally pull all these elements together in an automated fashion.
