- Getting physical access to the property to make a proper appraisal.
- Having enough field assessors to cover all the properties on the tax rolls.
Asset Drone services offer solutions for high-value properties with multiple features that are otherwise hard to assess.
Waterfront properties are especially difficult for an assessor to see, even from a boat – and it is typically on the water side that a property has its best improvements. Drones solve the problem.
Drones are small and relatively quiet. They can hover and get into tight spaces that not even a human can easily access. They can very quickly scan all sides of a property, including rooflines, courtyards and additions, offering a full 3-dimensional model for the appraiser to assess. High-resolution cameras offer close-up zooms back in the office that show pinpoint detail.
Tax appraisal has always suffered from too few assessors in the field for the number of properties. Use Asset Drone as a force-multiplier for your tax appraisal team. Drone surveys can hugely increase the inventory of surveyed properties, and identify where the human assessor should intervene for additional inspection.
