When you use comparable data from SmartExchange, you're automatically charged on a per‑report basis. Each signed report containing peer data costs 99¢. But how can you tell which comparables in your report contain peer data? Follow the steps below to find out!


  1. First, open TOTAL.
  2. Open the report containing peer data and navigate to the Side‑by‑Side PowerView.
    If you're not sure which reports contain peer data, go to myaccount.alamode.com, log in with your a la mode credentials, and click SmartExchange on the left menu. The Subject address for every report containing peer data is displayed along with a time stamp.
  3. At the top of each comparable in your report, the source of its data is shown. If Source: Peer (A) is displayed on any comparable when the report is signed, it creates a charge on your bill. Source: Typed (B) indicates that no peer data was used.

  4. That's it! If your report contains any comps which show Source: Peer when it's signed, a corresponding charge appears on your account.
