Map Comps

 
     

It’s often easier to spot valid comps when you see them laid out on a map. The Comps Database can quickly generate a map showing the location of any selection of comps. To do so…

  1. In the Comps Database, select comps you’d like to map by checking the box to the left of each property.
         
      Hint: Use the Comps Database’s search features to display a limited number of comps that meet your criteria. Then, right-click any comp and choose Mark Comps, Mark All from the pop-up menu.  
         
  2. Click Map in the toolbar at the top, or right-click anywhere in the Comps display and select Map, Selected comparables from the pop-up menu.
  3. In the Maps Wizard, confirm the property addresses and click Next.

  4. Modify your map as desired using the annotation tools in the Annotate your map pane.
  5. Click Finish when you’re done.
  6. Next, you’re prompted to add the map to your digital workfile for this report to better maintain compliance with USPAP.  Just click Yes or No to indicate your choice.

 

Another option is to use a map to find all comp within a certain radius of the subject. To do so…

  1. In the Comps Database, right-click any comp in the list. From the pop-up menu, choose Map, then 1, 2, 5 or 10 miles. To enter a different distance, click Custom, type the amount and click OK.
  2. In the Maps Wizard, confirm the property addresses and click Next.
  3. Modify your map as desired using the annotation tools in the Annotate your map pane.
  4. Click Finish when you’re done.
